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.

Where Is Your Business Electricity Sourced From?

by D-ENERGi
 

If you are considering switching your current business electricity supplier, you may not be aware of the importance of understanding where your electricity is sourced from. This could play an important role in helping you make a decision when it comes to choosing a new business electricity supplier. Your business electricity supplier’s FMD will provide you with the details of where your electricity is sourced from.

Understanding Fuel Mix Disclosure from Business Energy Suppliers

 

A Fuel Mix Disclosure or FMD, as it is often referred to within the industry, is the information electricity suppliers are obligated to provide within Great Britain. This discloses to customers the mix of fuels used to generate their electricity and the impact this has on the environment. These disclosures are released across an annual period by energy companies in the UK and are updated each year.

Why is Fuel Mix Disclosure important?

 

As people begin to realise the true extent of their carbon footprint, the discussion around energy sources is going to continue for decades. With the UK government committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050, businesses, in particular, have an important role to play in the reduction of carbon emissions and switching from the use of non-renewable energy sources, like fossil fuels to renewable energy sources like wind and solar.

Therefore, it is more important than ever that you understand the fuel mix disclosure provided by business electricity suppliers. With this information, you are armed with the relevant knowledge to make an informed decision when it comes to choosing a business electricity supplier. One which will help your business contribute to your own sustainability goals and helping achieve the government’s aims for reaching net zero emissions.

The Average UK Fuel Mix

 

One way to review the information your energy supplier offers is to compare this with the average UK fuel mix. Allowing you to determine how they compare with other energy suppliers. For the period 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021, the UK standard fuel mix was reported as follows:

Coal – 2.7%

Natural Gas – 38.2%

Nuclear – 16.1%

Renewables – 40.3%

Other – 2.7%
