UK #Energy Bill to increase prices to fund cleaner fuel


The government has published details of its long-awaited Energy Bill, designed to keep lights on and emissions down.

It will allow energy companies to charge households an extra £7.6bn until 2020, to go towards low-carbon electricity infrastructure.

A decision about setting carbon emission targets for 2030 has been delayed until 2016, after the election.

Labour said this was a "humiliating failure" for the Lib Dems, who want gas banished from the electricity system.
