To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their estimate of the cost of electricity and gas for the average family in 2010-11; and what they forecast it will be in 2014-15.
DECC published estimates of future average annual household gas and electricity bills alongside the Annual Energy Statement (AES) in July 2010. This analysis is available online at: http://www.decc.gov.uk/en/content/cms/what_we_do/uk_supply/markets/impacts/impacts.aspx.
DECC has committed to updating these estimates annually as part of the AES.
The table below presents a time series of these estimates (in real 2009 prices) from 2010 to 2015, which include the estimated impact of Government policies that were in place or planned to a sufficient degree of detail by the time of the AES 2010:
