The Energy Bill Relief Scheme

We would like to take this opportunity to reassure our prospective and existing customers and clarify the following on the Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS):

  • The Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS) applies to fixed contracts agreed on or after 1st December 2021 as well as to deemed, variable and flexible tariffs and contracts. It will apply to energy usage from 1st October 2022 to 31st March 2023, running for an initial six-month period for all non domestic energy users..
  • All energy suppliers will apply the same discount. This discount will automatically appear on your statements. Customers do not need to apply for the scheme or contact us.
  • The BEIS department recommends all customers continue to enter into fixed price agreements as normal to shield businesses from future wholesale price increases. This way we can ensure all our customers are protected from the volatility in the current wholesale market.
  • For customers who qualify for the Energy Bill Relief Scheme we kindly ask all qualifying customers to provide us with monthly gas and / or electricity meter reads until end of the scheme. This should be done ideally on the first day of the month or no later than the 10th.This will be a great help to get your bills as accurate as possible and ensure we apply the right discount throughout the scheme period.

Finding Cheaper Half Hourly Electricity Tariffs


When it comes to finding cheaper half hourly electricity tariffs, there is still a lot of confusion around the subject.

Essentially, half hourly tariffs will need specialist meters installed in those firms and organisations that are big users of electricity rather than for small and medium-sized firms.

The meter will record their electricity usage and send this information to the supplier every 30 minutes.

This means that there’s no need for estimated bills since the meters provide accurate information.

However, since the half hour contracts tend to be more complex, it’s advisable to have experts take part in the half hourly electricity procurement process to ensure that you get a good deal.

Source a cheaper half hourly electricity quote

The data from the meters will also help to source a cheaper half hourly electricity quote since the potential provider can use this information.

From the data, they will be able to tailor their offering to meet your firm’s needs because they will know when your firm’s peak periods of demand will be.

Also, as a business, you can use software to analyse the data to see whether there are savings to be made, for example, by switching production or peak periods of use to off-peak periods.

It’s also possible to find a business electricity provider who offers a consultancy to look at how and when you use electricity and advise you on the steps to reduce consumption.

These experts may also look at your previous half hourly electricity bills to see whether you have been overcharged and they may also offer advice on reducing water and gas consumption as well.

Your half hourly electricity procurement process

If you need to find an expert to deal with your half hourly electricity procurement process, then it’s a good idea to speak with the team at D-Energi.

Not only do the experts have lots of experience with this market but they also have access to the entire marketplace for half hourly electricity providers.

This means they can find a cheaper and better deal for meeting your needs from all potential providers who may be interested in offering a quote.

There are criteria that will dictate these prices including your geographic location, which may preclude some half hourly suppliers from wanting to quote.

The industry that you work in and the size of your business will also have an influence on the deals which are offered and whether you have plans for expansion.
