Business energy prices unsettled by UK carbon policy.
Volatile business energy pricingHowever, the Chancellor seems committed to gas supply, long term, a stand that is making him look increasingly isolated. Combined with a lack of a defined carbon intensity target, this is creating uncertainty in the industry. The government’s own climate change advisors are also quick to point out the wider political ramifications of failing to meet obligations set out in climate change legislation. This uncertainty can, in turn, create a trickle down effect, creating ever more volatility in the energy sector, in terms of pricing, leaving businesses exposed to the vagaries of the market. And in this current choppy economic and ecological climate, what is needed more than anything is long-term confidence and assurance. In such a fluid market, it is ever more fundamental to use a business energy broker to ensure that you have the best possible deal for your business, thereby ensuring you have done what you can to protect your company from the buffeting effects of rising business energy prices.
