Sources of our business energy
We can no longer rely on energy from the North Sea for supplying UK’s homes and businesses.
We provide gas and power to half of Britain's homes and have over 1 million contracts in place for business supply in the UK, making us the largest energy supplier to small businesses in the UK. We can currently meet around 60% of this demand from our own energy sources.
However, we have to compete in increasingly unstable markets to find the rest. This means buying it on the open market, or 'wholesale'.
The prices in these markets can be affected by a number of different factors.
