Budget Energy is the latest energy provider to hike its prices, with an 18% increase from 8 October.

The company said it was due to the rising costs of global wholesale energy.

Budget Energy has 96,000 customers in Northern Ireland and is the third largest supplier.

Firmus energy, SSE Airtricity, and Click Energy have also recently announced gas and electricity price increases.

It is the second time Budget Energy has increased its prices this summer.

Peter McClenaghan, director of infrastructure and sustainability at the Consumer Council, said customers would see an average £128 on their annual bill.

Eon have told me that they are increasing the gas price by 22% and electricity by 11%. They are reducing the daily standing charges by a fraction.
All suppliers will be doing the same so might wait a bit for things to settle before looking for a new supplier. Some of the smaller companies are going out of business.

We just got fixed up early summer.

British gas... Fixed Price Aug 2022v2

Gas 1.995 pkwh, stand charge 21.683 per day
Elec 13.146 pkwh, stand charge 20.864 per day

Guess its a new tariff on offer now
but phoning up likely to get
better offer than off Internet.

Especially off company you currently use!

Customers have been advised not to panic after two energy suppliers announced they had ceased trading.

One of the firms is Edinburgh-based People's Energy, which supplies gas and electricity to about 350,000 homes and 1,000 businesses.

The other is Dorset-based Utility Point, which has 220,000 domestic customers.

National advice service Advice Direct Scotland said energy supplies would continue for those affected.

It also said customers would not lose any money owed to them.


Consumers have also been advised not to immediately switch to a new supplier as a new company will be chosen by regulator


Further information about the collapse of the energy firms can be found on the Ofgem website.

The amount of oaps on buses in winter is pretty sad really

But they're will be a lot more of them this winter, the buses are quite cozy if you get a decent seat, esp with the little heater running along the bottom of the seats

The UK's sixth largest energy company, Bulb, is seeking a bailout to stay afloat amid surging wholesale gas prices.

The company, with 1.7m customers, is working with the investment bank Lazard to try to shore up its balance sheet.

It is the latest energy company battling to avoid going bust, with at least four smaller UK firms expected to go out of business next week.

A bailout for Bulb could come as part of a joint venture or merger with another company, with a further option being a cash injection from investors, according to the Financial Times, who first reported the story.

A Bulb spokesperson told the BBC: "From time to time we explore various opportunities to fund our business plans and further our mission to lower bills and lower CO2.

"Like everyone in the industry, we're monitoring wholesale prices and their impact on our business."

At the beginning of 2021 there were 70 energy suppliers in the UK, but industry sources have said there may be as few as 10 left by the end of the year.

Ocado have only limited ability to deliver frozen food due to a shortage of dry ice which is used to keep stuff frozen during delivery.This will be replicated by other food deliveries(imo).

Must read my recent letters from British Gas offering a fixed tariff.

Interesting on news this morning. Fixed prices offered would be hedges against but those on flexible tariffs may be The ones causing the problem as their are price caps in place.

Another one who still thinks the Conservatives are conservatives. Cameron was continuity New Labour and neither May nor Johnson have made any attempt to turn the ship around. We're doomed if we carry on down that route.

I often wonder that myself, Whispering, I don't think they even know. They just want power and follow the trends most likely to get them elected. Good for them but not necessarily good for the country.

Under labour we were still a net exporter of natural gas to the EU even though we knew we were running out and would soon need to buy expensive gas from Russia ourselves  .But Tony Blair does like to kiss the Rs of the EU

Natural gas is mainly made up from methane and methane is easily capture while the bio mass breaks down this gas will end up in the atmosphere, so much better to burn it off first, or we can continue to line the pockets of the Russian's while crying over a battle that as already been fought and won

The thing that gets me about thick remoaners is they seem to think we don't have access to actual facts?
The BBC is never slow to blame things on Brexit, yet:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-58605735
"Natural gas prices are at record highs as economies around the world begin to recover from the Covid crisis.

In the UK, lower winds have meant less renewable energy is generated. There have also been outages at some nuclear stations and lower flows into the UK of natural gas from Norway, pushing up the price of natural gas.

[JC - Norway not in the EU]

Industry group Oil & Gas UK said wholesale prices for gas are up 250% since January - with a 70% rise since August.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) reported that in 2020, 60% of the UK's natural gas supply was imported.

Mr Kwarteng is talking to chief executives from gas producers, the National Grid, suppliers including Scottish Power, EON and EDF, and the regulator Ofgem.

The business secretary said energy security was "an absolute priority".

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy said on its website: "While we are not complacent, we do not expect supply emergencies this winter."

Dermot Nolan, director at Fingleton Strategic Consultancy and former chief executive of Ofgem, told the BBC gas prices have increased not just in Britain but all over the world, with "Germany and Spain experiencing similar types of increases".

He said "high gas and high electricity prices will be sustained for the next three to four months", adding that it was difficult to see what the government could do about it."

Now please tell us in what way your fictional "regulated market and Brexit" fits into that?

the more green energy we use the more gas we need to buy at top of market prices when the green energies levels drop off for various reasons
