21 September 2022 - Government announces plans to introduce a cap on wholesale energy bills for businesses.

  • Government unveils The Energy Bill Relief Scheme which will see wholesale energy prices for all firms capped for six months from October 1.
  • Under the scheme, revealed by the Department for Business, Energy and Industry (BEIS), wholesale prices are expected to be fixed for all non-domestic energy customers at £211 per MWh for electricity and £75 per MWh for gas. It will apply to energy usage from 1 October 2022 to 31 March 2023. Firms do not need to contact suppliers as this will be automatically applied to them.
