UK must not be at 'mercy' of international gas market

Energy watchdog Ofgem has revealed that despite opposition to onshore wind power it added less to energy bills than imported gas last year - which critics argue "dominates" the UK energy market.

Ofgem's Renewables Obligation (RO) annual report for 2010/11, published today (March 14) shows that onshore wind added just £4.68 to the annual UK energy bill - an increase of 0.5%. In contrast, imported gas added about £120 to energy bills - an increase of more than 10%. In total Renewables Obligation (RO) was shown to increase a UK household annual bill by £15.15.
