Energy in the UK

What is the latest update?
Ofgem, the UK regulator for energy, has updated the UK 2024 energy price cap.

The average household will now pay £1,928 a year for gas and electricity. This is an increase of just over 5% – around £94 – on the October energy price cap.

Households on standard variable tariffs will now be billed based on the new unit rates and standing charges. Customers on fixed-rate energy tariffs are not affected. Their energy prices are guaranteed to stay the same for the duration of their contract.

What is the Energy Price Cap?
The energy price cap does what it says on the tin – it’s a cap or limit on the amount that energy suppliers in the UK can charge for domestic electricity and gas. Although it’s often quoted as a monthly or annual cost, the cap is actually on the per-unit cost of energy. Your own bill is still based on usage, average household usage for different-sized homes is used to estimate what individual bills will be.

The cap applies to all Standard Variable Tariffs in the UK. It doesn’t apply to you if you are on a fixed-rate tariff. Standard variable tariffs used to be the most expensive way to get your energy, but the energy crisis and price cap now mean that these are the best value tariffs available.

Is there any support available?
In response to the rising cost of living, the UK government has confirmed that every household will receive £400 in energy support from October. This will come in the form of six monthly bill payments of £66.66, made directly to your energy supplier.

There’s also further support available for certain households including an increase to the winter fuel allowance, you can read about all of the support available in more detail here.
