Explaining the 2021 Energy Crisis in the UK

Jon Fletcher

CEO of Big Clean Switch, Jon Fletcher, explains why electricity tariffs have increased so significantly in the UK this year, leading to many suppliers going bust. Jon also talks about why electricity tariffs vary from post code to post code, what the standing charge pays for and what makes a green tariff green.

Our Zoom connection was very erratic and unstable on the day of the interview, so the lip syncing in the video is not always aligned. If you prefer, you can listen to the podcast version instead.

We would like to thank the MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) for sponsoring this interview in the Renewing the Conversation series.
