iNews| Windfall Tax 

The government announced the temporary, targeted energy profits levy, or windfall tax designed to help consumers with the rising cost of energy bills. Research Partner Dr Dan Atzori spoke to iNews on why the tax may not be the most enduring solution for the energy bill crisis.

Besides giving all consumers small discounts to their energy costs, there are multiple, more sustainable options available that target support at those most in need, whether this be the introduction of a social tariff, or more work to ensure customers on pre-pay meters are not seeing a disproportionate increase in their bills.
