Energy saving: your questions

Clare Corbett, Ann Robinson and Robert Bell
BBC Radio 4's Money Box Live
Wednesday 21 October at 1502 BST On BBC Radio 4 and Online

On Wednesday's programme Paul Lewis and guests answered your questions on fuel bills and energy saving.

A recent review of Britain's energy supplies by the Office of the Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) outlined the effect of four energy scenarios on domestic consumer bills, the worst of which envisaged a rise of more than 60% by 2016.

Other scenarios resulted in increases between 14% and 25% by 2020.

If you want advice about reducing your household energy costs why not contact the programme.

Do you feel you are paying too much for your energy?

Might you be eligible for a grant to help you keep your home warm?

Could switching your supplier really make a difference?

Or perhaps you need help understanding your bill or the many different tariffs on offer?

Whatever your concern, our panel were here to help. Paul Lewis was joined by:

  • Clare Corbett, energy campaigner, Which?
  • Ann Robinson, director of consumer policy, Uswitch
  • Rob Bell, Energy Saving Trust

Presenter: Paul Lewis
Producer: Diane Richardson
