Detail

UK industrial energy prices are an important part of the department’s work. They are widely used within government - in briefing, to assist in developing and monitoring policies, to assess price trends, to highlight (and therefore help to prevent) price discrimination, and to monitor the effects of liberalising energy markets. They are also used extensively by industry, eg as price escalators in fuel purchasing contracts and as evidence in contract negotiations.
