The UK Government recently announced the Energy Bill Relief Scheme which would almost half the predicted MWh price for electricity and gas for businesses this winter, to £211/MWh and £75/MWh respectively.

The scheme was first announced by newly appointed Prime Minister Liz Truss on 8 September as she addressed the House of Commons. It came alongside the Energy Price Guarantee, a support scheme that freezes the average domestic energy bill at £2,500 and is expected to cost upwards of £100 billion.

A support packet for 28 million UK households, will limit yearly gas and electricity bills to £2,500 from 1 October. Support for businesses must operate differently as they have no price cap in place.
