The UK business gas market 2017
During 2017, we have seen a significant drop in gas prices and the wholesale value of other energy sources.
This can be attributed to unit operating costs being reduced in the previous 2-3 years, as oil and gas suppliers have had to become more competitive and more concerned about efficiency of supply. Warmer temperatures in the UK are also creating a reduction in demand which similarly drives down prices for businesses.
Oil prices have also experienced a decline, which is important for Britain, as many gas contracts across Europe are index-linked to the price of oil – So if oil prices decrease, then so does the price of gas.

How will switching business gas supplier affect my business?
When comparing business gas provider and choosing a new contract, you may be concerned that this will affect the gas supply to your business – Don’t be!
All energy suppliers within the UK use a central network of connections to deliver gas and electricity to your business. This means that there is no need for any major works, you can complete your entire switch on paper.
The only small exception to this is if you need to install a Smart Meter that is compliant with your new supplier. If this is a requirement for your new contract, the process should be relatively simple and should not affect your supply.

What is green business gas?
Green business gas is energy that is generated from renewable sources such as Anaerobic Digestion – A process in which organic waste is transformed into biogas.
Unfortunately, there are limited techniques to produce green business gas. However, some suppliers do promise not to involve fracking in their extraction methods – a way of mining natural gas that is globally protested against by environmentalists.
