Polititians are scum, SNP has a policy to make Scotland 100% renewable which will increase costs drastically but it does not stop one of them diverting the attention for the current increase elsewhere.

MSP says households 'struggling' to pay energy bills

Mr Hepburn described the price increases as "scandalous" and called on the UK government to do more to help those in fuel poverty.

I feel even more increases on the majority to help the minority coming on.

The future is solar. BH readers will be amused (and somewhat reassured) by the cynicism of most of the denizens of HUKD.

Sea bed wave energy hub not yet used

£42m more hosed up the wall in the name of 'sustainability'.

Deja vu

Labour PM who got into power by back stabbing is in precarious position but may hang on as another blood letting so soon may be too much for the voters to take.

This time around the UEA is producing evidence in direct conflict with what Chris Huhne would want to see being produced. Do they know something we don't?

"Green plans to make struggling families pay £11.3billion to install smart energy meters in every home risk being an expensive flop and even causing family rows.

"Energy Secretary Chris Huhne claims the new meters will allow people to see how much energy they are using by the minute, so encouraging them to cut back.

"However, a 12-month pilot study involving thousands of British families found they ‘may have not much effect’ on consumption, and can even trigger arguments. The research by experts at the University of East Anglia calls into question the huge upheaval and cost of the programme, which will be passed on to families through higher bills.

"Dr Tom Hargreaves, of the university’s School of Environmental Sciences, said any initial enthusiasm among householders with smart meters to cut energy use quickly wore off.

"In some homes, their use was abandoned; in others there were rows over energy use between parents and children, or between partners.

"Dr Hargreaves said: ‘Rather than feeling motivated to save more energy and money, householders were left feeling frustrated and despondent that the changes they could make were very small and they were receiving little or no meaningful support from anywhere else, such as government and local authorities.’

"Energy companies are promoting the devices, not least because they will allow them to sack thousands of meter readers and billing staff. The meters do offer the benefit to consumers that bills will be accurate in future, rather than being based on estimates.

"Dr Hargreaves, who is presenting his research today at a conference in London, said the decision to roll out meters had been rushed, without sufficient evidence.

Feeling the heat over fuel bills? This summer five of the six big energy companies have announced average price increases of 18% for gas and 11% for electricity making household bills the highest on record. But the price the energy companies pay for their fuel is a third lower than it was at its peak in 2008 - So how do you know the bills you're paying are fair?

Well, they're not fair, are they? Fortunately BBc Watchdog featured energy bills this evening and they have asked viewers to send in their comments about their investigation. Do you think more detail should be shown on bills?

What important detail is being omitted?

"Clear About Carbon is a European Social Fund financed project with a mission to find new ways to increase carbon and climate awareness within businesses and the public sector."

Europe funded-why am I not surprised?
