The competition in the UK Third Party Intermediary (TPI) industry is such that the largest companies can negotiate lower options. Partnering with one that has most buying leverage enables you to obtain more favourable terms than elsewhere.

All TPIs earn commissions that vary by provider and company. Your TPI should only add from 0.1p to 0.3p to your unit rate per kWh to cover their expenses. If yours are higher than this, then you're being overcharged.

Can You Trust YOUR Broker?

Approximately 30% of UK companies use brokering services to leverage the market knowledge of a third party to negotiate competitive deals.

The majority of brokers with the largest market share have signed up to a voluntary code of conduct. The Utilities Intermediary Association manage the code and publish a list of members on their website. Ofgem oversees regulation for the whole industry and is in the process of setting new rules for the B2B market.

The UIA has accredited the services provided on this website.
