Graham Watson's curator insight, September 8, 2013 3:53 AM

The issue of energy supply is a topical one: there are worries about the ability of the government to ensure enough electricity capacity and now the gas industry appears to face similar problems. The Redpoint report has been interpreted in different ways by different interest groups. The Energy Minister has said 'no need to worry', industry sources the opposite. Of course, both are motivated by self-interest.

Might this be another rhetorical battle in the knowledge that the gas companies are likely to foist further price rises on consumers and then be able to say that it is the fault of the government? And which other industry would argue for such a hefty subsidy? Why does the gas lobby have so much power?
