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.

Understanding the Market for Business Energy Suppliers


For those firms who need help in understanding the market for business energy suppliers then this article is a good starting point.

While the helpful team of advisers at D-Energi can answer questions about hot to find cheaper energy suppliers, it is also possible for the firm concerned to carry out their own research too.

Perhaps, the best starting point is to visit one of the many online comparison websites to see what energy suppliers are offering firms like theirs.

It’s worth pointing out these online comparison websites offer a good indication of current market rates but they may not be analysing the whole market for suppliers and therefore may not be aware of cheaper deals and tariffs.

Business electricity suppliers

Obviously, every firm will be needing business electricity suppliers for their everyday needs from making a cup of tea to powering their computers, tools and other necessary equipment.

It’s important to appreciate that the contract for business energy will run for fixed terms which range from one year and up to five years.

There are a number of advantages for opting for no longer term contracts and the main one being protecting a business from future potential price increases.

The downside is the firm will be locked into a contract until it ends and they may miss out on better deals and tariffs from other suppliers in the meantime.

Indeed, all firms should check when their business energy contract comes up for renewal and use this as an opportunity to search the marketplace for better and cheaper suppliers.

Firms looking for business gas suppliers

Again, this advice also works for those firms looking for business gas suppliers and their terms too will vary as will their contract lengths.

Most firms will be looking for a gas supply to keep their premises and offices warm and there may be better deals to be had for those firms who have more than one premises to consider.

The marketplace for business energy has seen competition increase in recent years and prices have fallen in real terms by around 13% and the growth in popularity for firms wanting renewable or green energy has also been boosted.


There’s no doubt that to understand the market for business energy suppliers can be a time-consuming process but the experts at D-Energi are available to help and offer advice when sourcing a new improved energy offer from a supplier.
