  • Ofgem (2014) Breakdown of a dual fuel bill. [Online] Available at <https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/chart/breakdown-dual-fuel-bill> [accessed 11 Jun 2014].

    Wholesale costs > Energy suppliers will talk of fluctuations in the World commodity market, such as wholesale price of gas used as primary fuel in gas-fired power generation.
  • Some people will always be first to switch.
    Most people have no real concerns. They have security of supply. Basically most people have better things to do with their time and in their lives than switch energy suppliers.
    The more self reliant consumer can be, the less need that have to contact their energy supplier.
    Therefore, suppliers can focus on fewer contacts and higher customer service.
    Bigger investment needed in self- and auto-metering.
    “The co-delivery of service” where consumers check their own meters rather than have meters read on their behalf.
  • Market entrants include three firms based in Ipswich
