Government outlines plans to help cut energy bills for businesses

On 21 September, the government announced new support for households, businesses and public sector organisations facing rising energy bills in Great Britain and Northern Ireland through a new Government Energy Bill Relief Scheme.

The government will provide a discount on wholesale gas and electricity prices for all non-domestic customers (including all UK businesses, the voluntary sector like charities and the public sector such as schools and hospitals) whose current gas and electricity prices are high. This support will be equivalent to the Energy Price Guarantee put in place for households earlier this month. Find out more here.
