Ofgem comment on the publication of the CMA final report
Responding to the publication of the Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) final report, Dermot Nolan, chief executive of Ofgem, said: “The CMA’s final report marks the end of its two year investigation and is an important milestone towards making the market more competitive and fairer.
The CMA’s remedies, combined with smart meters and faster switching, clear the way to secure a new and better deal for all consumers, especially the vulnerable.
Ofgem urges the industry to get behind the entire package of remedies and to work with us to deliver an energy market that works for both active and disengaged customers as quickly and effectively as possible.”
