Energy Prices in the UK are rising dramatically - the energy price cap in the UK will rise 54% from April - and many people are anxious. At the same time we are aware of the impacts of fossil fuels on our planet and are working for less reliance on coal and natural gas.

In this episode of the Where Does It Come From? podcast, Jo Salter asks energy expert John Taylor some key questions about why energy bills are rising, how renewable energy fits in to the picture and what steps we can be taking to cut our fuel bills.
