Committee to hear evidence on net zero policies
The Industry and Regulators Committee will speak to campaigners and former policymakers about the costs of net zero, the Government’s plans for the transition and the role of Ofgem, the energy regulator. The Committee will discuss the cost and potential impacts of a more renewable energy system, how policymakers should consider the interests of future generations, and the role of carbon pricing.
Possible questions include:
- What is your view of the likely costs of achieving net zero emissions by 2050?
- Is further clarity needed on the Government’s plans to transition to net zero emissions?
- What reforms should be made to the energy market? What role should carbon pricing play in the future energy system?
- How should the transition to net zero be regulated, and what role should Ofgem play in the transition?
