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.

Reduce Costs with An Energy Consultancy


Along with switching energy providers, a business or organisation can also reduce their costs with an energy consultancy which sees an expert helping them deliver long-term savings.

Depending on the energy provider or broker you use, this consultancy will not only look at the gas and electricity being consumed by your business but also look at how you can reduce water usage as well.

But it’s not just about saving money on overheads, though this is a great reason for using a consultancy, since having an expert look at your energy and water usage levels will also boost your environmental credentials.

A consultant will help you understand more about the carbon footprint of the firm and reduce it by offsetting energy consumption levels.

Check the bills for your energy services

The consultancy will also check the bills for your energy services and ensure that the invoices are correct. They will validate these bills and then hold the supplier accountable for any mistakes or overcharging.

This offering also extends to reviewing your firm’s water consumption and to help eliminate waste and reduce consumption levels that will lower costs as part of their water audit.

It’s also important that your firm’s business water and energy efficiencies are benchmarked against similar businesses.

By doing so, the consultant will be able to tell you what kind of consumption reduction can be realistically achieved to deliver long-term savings.

Signing up with a new energy service company

As mentioned earlier, one of the big attractions for a consultancy service is that they are often offered as a benefit when signing up with a new energy service company as part of a package.

Not only will you and your business enjoy lower bills by switching but the energy consultant will boost the savings even further when checking how and when you use your energy and then making recommendations for using less. It’s essentially a win-win offer for a business to reduce their overheads.

It’s also important to appreciate that the consultancy will actively involve employees to reduce their energy and water needs, so everyone buys into the idea of helping the environment.

It may help to take note that the Carbon Trust has estimated that having staff involved could reduce a firm’s energy and water consumption levels every year by 20%.

If you would like more information about how to reduce costs with an energy consultancy, then the team of experts at D-Energi will be able to help.
