New Energy Bill – They’re Coming for Your House

A new parliamentary bill is being rushed through parliament, only 9 MPs voted against it.

If you want to look it up, the bill has the title:

‘A Bill to make provision about energy production and security and the regulation of the energy market, including provision about the licensing of carbon dioxide transport and storage; about commercial arrangements for industrial carbon capture and storage and for hydrogen production; about new technology, including low-carbon heat schemes and hydrogen grid trials; about the Independent System Operator and Planner; about gas and electricity industry codes; about heat networks; about energy smart appliances and load control; about the energy performance of premises; about the resilience of the core fuel sector; about offshore energy production, including environmental protection, licensing and decommissioning; about the civil nuclear sector, including the Civil Nuclear Constabulary; and for connected purposes’

It’s a 446-page bill covering many areas of energy production, storage and usage but some sources have extracted a few key points noteworthy to the British householder (it’s another instance where conspiracy theorists have been proved right).
