Businesses are concerned about the EMR impact, with 57% organisations believing that it will lead to an increase in energy bills.
New research by npower shows businesses are concerned about the impact that the UK Electricity Market Reform (EMR) could have on the UK’s competitiveness in the global marketplace. At an event held by the energy firm, companies said that the focus of the EMR should be on refining current energy policy, not reforming it.
The survey, released to mark the end of the EMR consultation process, revealed that 55% of businesses fear the proposals will lead to higher energy bills, while 47% think they will be complex and unwieldy. The research was carried out in March among 80 professionals responsible for energy management in their organisations.
