The Energy Bill Relief Scheme

D-ENERGi would like to commend the Government Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and all civil servants involved working around the clock to implement the Energy Bill Relief Scheme. We appreciate BEIS efforts in working with all non-domestic suppliers over the last few weeks. We would like to take this opportunity to reassure our prospective and existing customers and clarify the following:

  • The scheme is only open to customers which have signed agreements with their suppliers from the 1st April 2022 onwards. The Energy Bill Relief Scheme comes into effect from the 1st October and a discount will be applied until 31st March 2023.
  • All energy suppliers will apply the same discount. This discount will automatically appear on your statements.
  • 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.
  • As portrayed in some media outlets there is no price cap for businesses. The price cap is on the wholesale element price only. Please do not expect the unit rates of 21.1 p/kwh for electricity and 7.5 p/kwh for gas to appear on your bills. These rates do not include the many other non-commodity costs which make up your bill for both gas and electricity.
  • 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.

What Does The UK Government “Energy White Paper” Mean For Businesses?

by D-ENERGi
 

If you are wondering what is going to happen to business electricity and business gas prices in the next ten years, and how ‘net zero’ transmission policies will affect your business, then read on.

The UK Government released its “Energy White Paper” in December last year (2020) which explained how they planned to move the UK to a net-zero future by decarbonising all sectors. In the report is the plan they aim to follow in order to cut carbon emissions by 230 million metric tonnes in the next ten years, while also supporting 220,000 jobs.

But what does all this mean for business? Well, if you are a business owner you will be faced with making some quite radical changes over the coming years, which can be broken down as follows:

  • A shift towards zero-emission electric vehicles (EVs). The UK Government has banned the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030 which means you need to start thinking about how you are going to switch your business fleet to electric vehicles now.
  • The construction of greener, and more efficient buildings. Gas boilers will need to be switched to more environmentally friendly options, such as low carbon or hydrogen-ready models. In the meantime, you can switch to greener business gas suppliers UK such as D-ENERGi
  • The movement towards a flexible and low-carbon energy system. The UK Government has committed to generating emission-free electricity by 2050, which focuses mainly on wind and solar power. In the meantime, the easiest way for you to start reducing your carbon emissions as a business is to switch to a green business energy tariff.

 

This pledge by the UK Government to reach net-zero by 2030 means that now is the best time for you to start thinking about how you can help them to deliver on their climate change commitments. There are lots of opportunities out there for businesses who are serious about contributing to this decarbonisation challenge – whatever sector they are in or whatever size their business is.  Starting down the pathway of carbon reduction now will help you to balance both your environmental and economic aims, while also helping you gain control over your energy costs and increase your business resilience.
