The Fossil Fuel Levy will remain at 10% for at least a further year from April, says Stephen Littlechild, Director General of Electricity Supply.

Ninety-seven per cent of levy proceeds currently go to subsidise the nuclear industry while the remaining 3% is shared between all renewables in England and Wales.
