With fuel prices soaring and our energy supplies running out, government plans are afoot to reform our electricity market. But what are the real issues at stake here? To get the views of someone from one of the smaller, green electricity suppliers Carla Jones spoke to Juliet Davenport, CEO of Ashden Award winning green electricity supplier Good Energy, about her perspective on this debate.

JD: The current market is a product of another time. It is designed around using easily accessible and plentiful fossil fuel supplies to deliver cheap energy, with little consideration for the long-term impact that would have.
