4. How do I switch energy supplier?

Your business electricity and gas supply numbers identify the current supply to your premises and enable you to switch to the best deal for your business. Your latest electricity bill will provide a Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN), and your latest gas bill will provide a Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN).

If you’ve never been billed, GEAB contact your current supplier for these numbers, or for new business electricity or gas supply connections, we contact your local network distributors (see above) to supply this information.

For further information on meter requirements, and to find out how the energy experts at GEAB assist businesses like yours to reduce future costs, contact the GEAB team.

Net Zero

The UK is set to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050.

The UK’s 2050 net zero target was suggested by the Committee on Climate Change, the UK’s independent climate advisory body. Net zero means any emissions would be balanced by schemes to offset a comparable amount of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

The UK has already reduced emissions by 42% while growing the economy by 72%, and has put clean growth at the heart of modern industrial strategy.

The percentage of Green Collar jobs could potentially grow to 2 million, with the value of exports from the low carbon economy grow to £170 billion a year by 2030.

For advice on Net Zero strategy, contact the GEAB team.
