Your guide to the energy crisis + free FAQ templates for your tenants and landlords

Posted by The Goodlord team on 22 September 2021

The UK has been gripped by an emerging energy crisis: wholesale gas prices have increased by 250% since the beginning of the year, including a 70% rise since August, according to the Oil & Gas UK trade body.

Experts have predicted that the industry may shrink to as few as 10 energy suppliers by the end of winter, down from about 70 suppliers at the start of the year.
