The current response to the energy crisis can be characterised as short term and tactical, largely focusing on:
- Trying to limit the effect of wholesale energy price rises on customers’ tariffs
- Securing new and additional sources of natural gas and fossil fuels.
This is missing a great opportunity to transform our approach to energy, which will in turn drive the transition. The strategic answers to the crisis are:
- Focus on energy bills not energy tariffs – and use energy efficiency, energy insights, electrification (direct and, where appropriate, via hydrogen) and ‘as a Service’ business models to minimise bills
- Maximise renewables in all their forms – distributed and behind the meter as well as large-scale.
