Maidstone, Kent United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 17, 2012 -- Household energy bills will rise by Â£190 by the end of the decade, according to an analysis published on Thursday by the government's official climate change advisers. But fears of "astronomical" rises as a result of building a clean energy system for the UK have been rejected by the report, which says charges on future bills for renewable energy and energy efficiency will contribute just Â£110 of the increase. The Managing Director of eco-friendly DCM Marketing Services has commented on the findings, saying "While any increase in bills is an annoying occurrence for homeowners nationwide, we here at DCM Marketing Services feel that in the long run, a clean energy system will benefit us all". The Maidstone based company continues "DCM Marketing strives to be as energy efficient as possible".
The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) says increases in bills over the past few years have been largely due to higher wholesale gas costs. "There have been claims that there will be astronomical bill rises in the next decade due to low-carbon policies. Our analysis disproves this," states David Kennedy, Chief executive of the CCC. "We want to demystify this issue and have an honest debate based on facts not assertions." Investing in low-carbon energy was the "sensible economic path" said Kennedy. A view shared by a source within DCM Marketing, stating "If left until a later date, the problem of Carbon Emissions in the future will be very expensive to solve".
There has been a concerted effort by some campaign groups to completely mislead the public into believing that green taxes have been the main cause of rises in fuel bills," said Bob Ward, at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at London School of Economics. "These groups, including the Global Warming Policy Foundation and the Taxpayers' Alliance, appear driven by an extreme ideological opposition to environmental regulation, and have sought to confuse and misinform the public with blatantly inflated figures." "The environment is very important" voices DCM Marketing's Managing Director. "Anything to help is a wonderful thing, whether it be introducing clean energy or taking part in local environmental work."
