Who is Business Energy?
Business Energy.com launched in 2009 and is a leading UK B2B energy savings website. We’re known for finding the cheapest electricity and gas prices for every size of UK business via our independent and impartial comparison services.
When deregulation of the energy markets started in the Autumn of 1998, there was little competition in providing any type of comparison services.
Since we launched in May 2009, we’ve assisted thousands of people each month with the services and information they need. Our knowledgeable call centre staff are on hand six days a week to help you lower your energy bills and provide expert advice.
From 2009 to 2017
Over the years there was a proliferation of services in the home sector but businesses were short changed. Our company started operations in May 2009 after seeing a gap in the market for business users. We rebranded to BusinessEnergy.com on 1st October 2010.
Development of our comparison services began immediately to offer businesses an easy method to compare prices for their gas and electricity.
During our first eight years in business, we created direct relationships with all the major energy companies and the independent suppliers that provide B2B services. Now we have direct relationships with British Gas PLC, npower, ScottishPower, SSE, Opus, Gazprom, EDF, and EON with pricing agreements from all other market providers.
We developed online quoting tools, expanded our telephone customer services team, and developed our website to provide more information to users.
2018 and Beyond
We now have 16 staff providing support to all of the UK’s 4.4 million businesses and associated premises. On average, each staff member has six year’s experience in the energy industry. Our philosophy remains at the core of our services to provide unbiased and transparent advice in this industry.
Some of our energy consultants attend the annual TELCA industry awards. They all work with the regulator OFGEM to maintain professional standards and we can assist with ISO 50001.
