Are green taxes to blame for high energy bills?

Britain may be standing on the threshold of a glorious summer but I'm already thinking about the winter and praying that this it's is as mild as last year because if it's anything like the bitterly cold December and January of 2012 my energy bill is going to go through the roof.

The cost of gas and electricity has risen 20% since 2009 and it's not going to stop there. The cost of heating our homes is so great that the National Grid warned the cost could double to over £2,000 a year by 2020.
