Energy efficiency "only way" to curb spiralling fuel bills

News of an expected increase in prices by British Gas of up to 25%  has
today been condemned as outrageous by the Green Party.(1)

Keith Taylor, Green Party Principal Speaker, commented: "This will be the
largest price rise to be forced through by an energy supplier since the
market was deregulated at the end of the 1990s, and will be the fourth
announced by British Gas in three years. (2)

"This will inevitably consign millions more to fuel poverty - latest
estimates suggest there are 2m pensioner homes without insulation, while
Help the Aged estimates that last winter, 28,700 older people in England and
Wales died of preventable, cold-related illnesses. How will the most
vulnerable to colder weather be able to cope with these new hikes?  (3)

"Centrica - parent company to British Gas - claims extortionate costs are a
result of the rise in the price of wholesale gas, forcing gas companies to
place the burden on customers.  But in 2004, they announced an 83% increase
in operating profit - to £243 million, in their energy business. (4)

"The figures don't add up. Clearly, the only way for consumers to curb
spiralling fuel bills in the face of an ever increasing drive for profits is
to become more energy efficient.

"Over a quarter of all carbon dioxide emissions released into the air come
from the energy used to run our homes, but a third of the cost of heating
our homes and businesses is immediately wasted through energy loss. Simple
measures such as loft or cavity wall insulation and switching off machines
on standby provide immediate benefits both to the environment as well as our
wallets. (5)

"In the face of supply shortages and resultant price increases, and the loss
of UK control of our energy costs due to reliance on foreign supplies, a
responsible government would embark on massive investment of homeland energy
production from clean, renewable sources."
