Surely our government could force the energy companies to divide their profits (say £2bn) by the number of residences that they supply, and charge the buyers of fuel at cost. In that way the consumers will not be paying huge amounts in their energy bills that go towards the shareholders' dividends. The shareholders can take a 'holiday' until our esteemed government gets the economy going again.
No bureacracy would be involved. Just force the charging of realistic amounts for fuel.
The government can easily do that in the same way it forces people on low incomes to pay council tax, and contribute to the council workers pensions from their own pensions.
