The Competition and Markets Authority is to publish its long-awaited final report tomorrow  (24 June) which it says will fix the broken energy market. 

But speaking on the eve of the report’s publication, Juliet Davenport, Chief Executive of independent supplier Good Energy, launched a pre-emptive attack on the Big Six British utility companies which dominate the UK energy supply market.

She said: “I want to see the CMA holding the big energy companies to account. For far too long the Big Six have taken loyal customers for granted. 

“This report needs to deliver practical solutions which really do un-stick the so-called ‘sticky’ customers and help them find the best deals.

“Consumers deserve a fair and transparent market so they can have confidence in their energy suppliers. And energy companies deserve a level playing field which supports and encourages competition. This report is the opportunity to make this possible.”

Earlier this week, the 100% renewable-energy provider Good Energy took home two awards at the 2016 British Renewable Energy awards for ‘Company of the Year and ‘Customer Service Recognition’.
