September 14, 2011 12:18 PM

The big energy companies have put their prices up - but not everyone realises they are also paying for the government's green initiatives as well.

Matthew Sinclair, TaxPayers' Alliance director and author of Let Them Eat Carbon visits a former power station, to give his take on rising energy costs and what he thinks we can and cannot afford.

Matthew will be appearing on today's Daily Politics, where he will debate his ideas with Labour MP Tessa Jowell and Conservative MP Grant Shapps after his film is shown about 12:40. The programme runs on BBC Two from 11:30 to 13:00, or later on iPlayer.
