Energy prices in the UK could soon vary depending on where you live as the government looks set to introduce 'zonal pricing' to the UK energy market.

The Review of Electricity Market Arrangements (REMA) consultation was launched to tackle record energy price rises in the UK, which forced many homes into fuel poverty.
