BIRA has said it will be continuing to engage with OFGEM to provide value insight into the industry on the non-domestic gas and electricity market. OFGEM has requested submissions from stakeholders, such as BIRA, to give their views on the state of the market as a whole, helping it to understand whether and where these are temporary or isolated to specific suppliers, or if they are systematic, potentially requiring changes in regulation.
Andrew Goodacre, ceo of BIRA, commented: “BIRA is engaging with OFGEN to ensure that the energy suppliers are genuinely supporting commercial businesses and making the best rates available.
“The current government support scheme will end at the end of March and be replaced by one that offers 94% less support. I also urge all businesses to speak to their energy suppliers on a regular basis to ensure that the service levels and rates charged are as they should be.”
