Switching energy suppliers could take just one day by 2018
24-hour energy switching might become a real service over the next three years under new plans revealed by the UK Government.
A media news report suggests that the plan to introduce switching in a day was announced as part of the government’s response to the Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) provisional findings.
The government insists it is “on the side of bill payers” and claims it is already taking action to help families and businesses gain control over their energy use.
Lord Bourne, Parliamentary under Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change said: “Our number one priority is to keep bills down for hardworking families and businesses across the country.
“The CMA has rightly identified that one of the biggest concerns is people not shopping around to get the best tariff. We know this is the key to people getting a better deal on their energy bills and are already working on measures to improve this.”
HeatingSave – slashing energy bills the intelligent way
This initiative is a truly commendable one, but if you’re looking for an alternate way of saving up to 30%+ on your energy bills, then HeatingSave is just the thing to consider.
Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.
