Energy Secretary Ed Davey has told Daybreak that Britain needs "billions of pounds of investment in our ageing energy infrastructure."
It is the Government's long awaited light bulb moment. The Energy Bill published today envisages changes that would reach into our lives.
By 2020 we will be paying nearly £100 a year more for energy. But whether bills will come down again afterwards is still in dispute.
The coalition will announce plans on updating the energy infrastructure of pylons and power stations, and cutting our reliance on carbon.
