This Government inherited a legacy of underinvestment in energy, especially electricity. Our new policies for investment and reform of the electricity market have led to more than £45 billion of investment in electricity generation and networks between 2010 and 2013. Our electricity market reforms mean that average annual household electricity bills will be around £41 lower over the period 2014 to 2030 than decarbonising without these changes.
