The number of people changing energy suppliers appears to have recovered from a four-year low in the middle of lockdown with the highest number of switches completed in the month of July since records began.
News
Figures from ElectraLink indicate that the lockdown has dampened enthusiasm for switching electricity supplier, with April's figures the lowest in four years for that month. Data published by the Energy Market Data Hub (EMDH) shows a dip both month-on-month and year-on-year.
News
By summer 2021 consumers should expect to switch their energy supplier by 5pm the next working day. Industry regulator Ofgem and the Data Communications Company are working towards creating a centralised switching service to facilitate this but one industry expert has referred to recent experiences with the smart meter rollout and questioned whether the timescale can be met.
Analysis
The energy sector is facing one of its biggest challenges yet as customers wake up from widespread inertia, spurred on by the evolution of price-­comparison/auto-switching services and changing consumer expectations.
Opinion
The price comparison and switching service will partner with Bud to allow customers to switch their provider on a banking app.
News
The Data Communications Company (DCC) has begun the countdown to delivering Ofgem's switching programme. The Central Switching Service (CSS) was initially scheduled to go live at the end of next year but it has since been pushed back to 2021.
