Searching the market for the right business energy prices can be daunting and time-consuming.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      We work with both large businesses and SME businesses. Subsequently, we have thousands of clients that range from pubs and restaurants to care homes and manufacturing. Our energy consultants have experience across all sectors and can advise you on today’s market conditions, suitable for your commercial premises.

      Energy suppliers have different tariffs that are suited to different sized companies. It’s imperative that you select the right tariff that’s best for your company.

      The UK has three primary fuels and they are used as follows:

      1. Solid fuels, bioenergy and petrol – 50%
      2. Natural gas – 32%
      3. Electricity – 18%

      The amount and form of utilities energy that UK businesses consume has undergone dramatic changes since the 1970s. Although solid fuel remains the leading source of energy for both commercial use (as shown above) and also domestic use, natural gas usage is set to undergo a dramatic change as the UK strives to make reductions in its carbon emissions. In fact,  it has actually increased 3.2% in the last 12 months, representing the beginnings of this change.

      However, as the UK population rises, so will the demand for energy, so although proportions can change, we can still expect an increase in energy usage overall. Not least as a reliable energy source is the foundation of British business and industry. So if your business is in need of a new energy contract, why not compare quotes on Utility Bidder to get the best deal.

      The Energy Mix

      If your gas or electricity is out of contract, then your tariff could be on a variable rate. Subsequently, you will be paying a variable/higher rate for your utilities.

      Renewing or switching suppliers could ensure that you make the best available savings on your energy bills.

      Read more in our out of contract and deemed energy rates guide or our fixed price or variable energy tariffs guide.

      Your contract end date will be located on your most recent gas or electricity bill. If you cannot find a bill, then contact us and one of our energy consultants will run over an LOA (letter of authority) with you. This gives us access to find out the details of your supplier.

      It’s important that you don’t allow your business to run out of contract before setting up a new one because you will be moved onto a variable/deemed rate.

      We experience many customers from a variety of businesses that find themselves paying high variable rates.

      All businesses that use electricity meter profile classes 05 – 08 will be upgraded to a half-hourly meter. This will change the way you are billed for electricity usage and bring in some additional charges. for more information on this or view our business electricity FAQs here. See more about P272 here.

      The best business energy supplier will take your company on as an individual case. Whether it’s gas or electricity (or both) the best energy broker will find you bespoke deals to suit. Utility rates are always changing and suppliers alter their requirements. Having a good power broker on board will ensure you save your business time and money when searching for business energy suppliers in the UK.

      Did you know that the energy we use at home only accounts for a quarter of the total energy used in the UK? The remaining three-quarters is attributable to business and transport energy. Let’s have a look at which sectors use the most energy and which utilities sources they use:

      How is energy measured?

      To compare sectors effectively, we will use the ‘KTOE’ unit, which means ‘kilotonne of oil equivalent’. All information comes from the Office of National Statistics in a report published in July 2018.

      The results

      – Private offices – 3,539 ktoe

      – Chemical manufacturing – 2,874 ktoe

      – Hospitality – 2,458 ktoe

      – Food products manufacturing – 2,242 ktoe

      – Hospitals – 2,237 ktoe

      – Non-metallic mineral manufacturing – 1,924 ktoe

      – Basic metals manufacturing – 1,489 ktoe

      – Rubber and plastic manufacturing – 1,442 ktoe

      – Small shops – 1,376 ktoe

      – Paper products manufacturing – 1,297 ktoe

      The results show that an abundance of small machines appears to be less energy efficient than large, industrial machines. Private offices containing computers, photocopiers, network hubs, projectors and phones burn the most energy, whilst the manufacturing of paper to stock these offices creates the least. The intensive heat required for chemical processing places it high in the list, whereas simpler industrial processes such as rubber weigh in at substantially lower energy rates. Even small business energy prices have a large influence on the UK’s consumption.
