Household Energy Bills to Hit Almost GBP5k in 10 Years Time


Released on: June 24, 2009, 8:44 am
Author: uSwitch.com
Industry: Energy

Consumers are being warned today that they could be facing annual energy bills of almost £5,000 a year by 2020. The shock forecast from uSwitch.com, the independent price comparison and switching service, is based on pricing trends over the last 5 years and takes into account the huge investment programme shortly to be undertaken by the energy industry and Government. The investment, expected to total £233.5 billion, will secure the country’s longer-term supply and enable the roll-out of smart metering into all homes, but will add £548 a year onto household energy bills for the next 15 years.

Looking at pricing trends alone, consumers could expect energy bills to reach £4,185 by 2020. This strips out the cost of investment, but factors in inflation and volatility in the wholesale markets, as seen by suppliers over the last 5 years. Since 2004, global demand for energy and volatility in wholesale prices have contributed to a 114% increase in household energy prices, including a 42% or £381 increase last year. The overall effect has been to see household energy bills more than doubling from £580 in 2004 to £1,243 today.

Volatility is expected to continue to be a dominant theme in the energy market going forward. Although the current world-wide recession is dampening demand for energy, the recession is due to end by 2011/12, when global demand for energy can be expected to start climbing again. Power hungry economies, such as China and India, will be returning to strength, resulting in an upward pressure on wholesale energy prices. At the same time, North Sea oil will start to run out adding greater pressure on the market. Wholesale energy prices account for around 50% of a household bill so continuing volatility will have an impact on the amount consumers will pay.

As well as upward pressure on household energy bills, there will be downward pressure too. The Government’s drive to make British households more energy efficient will start to pay dividends. But, instead of reducing bills it will serve to counterbalance other factors pushing energy usage up, such as the growth in single person households, Britain’s ageing population and growing reliance on electrical gadgets.

Ann Robinson, Director of Consumer Policy at uSwitch.com, says: “This is a wake-up call for us all. The £5,000 a year energy bill may seem like an outside possibility, but we have to remember that energy bills doubled in the last five years alone and that the huge investment needed just to keep the lights on in Britain will alone add £548 a year onto our bills. The fact is we are entering a new era of high cost energy and households will have to adapt their behaviour accordingly.

“The Government has been banging the drum for energy efficiency for a while now, but consumers have been reluctant to spend money on these measures. As a result, energy efficiency has been massively underperforming even though it is one of the biggest defences we have against escalating energy costs. We also have a competitive energy market, and yet less than 5% of consumers are on the most competitive energy plans – most people are paying far more than they have to for the energy they use.

“This has to change. My advice to consumers is to invest in making your home more energy efficient, reduce the amount of energy you use and make sure you are paying the lowest possible price for it. Big projects such as a new energy efficient boiler or home insulation can be expensive, but the savings you make through cutting the price of your energy could be re-invested into energy efficiency measures so that you reap even greater rewards in the future.

“Don’t be put off. If cost is an issue, speak to your supplier to see if they can help – they have a pot of money available to help households with energy efficiency. Or contact the Energy Saving Trust for advice. The key thing is to start future-proofing yourself against higher energy bills now.”

Water Cooler Supplier Eden Springs Launches Oonline Hydration Calculator


Released on: June 24, 2009, 8:28 am
Author: Eden Springs UK
Industry: Food & Beverage

Eden Springs, the UK’s leading water cooler supplier, have just released a new hydration calculator that enables people to work out how much water they should be drinking. This online tool calculates your optimum daily water intake by taking into account a person’s gender, age, weight and exercise routine. The hydration calculator is available in the services section of the Eden Springs website.

It is commonly accepted that we all require a certain amount of water to maintain optimum health, energy and concentration. It is also reported that most people fall short of this daily requirement. What is less understood is exactly how much water we need.

Everyone is familiar with the ‘8 glasses a day’ or “7 glasses per day” arguments, but these rumours often understate our true requirements and don’t take into account the differences in a person’s age, weight and lifestyle. On the flip side, drinking too much water is not ideal either so it’s important for an individual to learn about their own requirements with some level of accuracy.

Damien Higgins, Marketing Manager at Eden Springs says “Eden Springs have released this calculator to give existing customers and website visitors a way of working out how many glasses of water they might need and it’s a reminder to us all that we should be refilling our glasses as we go about our day.”

“We’ve also just released a new range of low cost bottled water cooler rental plans, and this calculator helps people to work out how many bottles of water they might need each month for their home or office. Of course, we can also deliver additional bottles to their doorstep at short notice if they find they’re running short.”

The hydration calculator is a continuation of Eden Springs ‘Well-Being at Work’ philosophy, which encourages the consumption of water in the workplace to improve health, energy, focus and concentration.

Barclaycard Marks World Environment Day


Released on: June 11, 2009, 5:23 am
Author: Barclaycard
Industry: Environment

In order to mark World Environment Day 2009, Barclaycard challenged its colleagues to ‘cut a kilo’ by changing the way that they work.

The campaign was part of Barclaycard’s commitment towards carbon neutrality and was aimed at helping colleagues understand how they can reduce their energy and water usage, and cut travel and unnecessary waste.

On the day itself, a team from Barclaycard was out and about litter picking near Barclaycard’s Brackmills HQ to help improve the local environment. Barclaycard also hosted guests from the local enterprise group Workbridge, the Energy Saving Trust and Monkey World.

Other initiatives taking place included a scheme to promote car sharing and promote the use of teleconferencing to reduce the need for long distance travel.

In 2008 Barclaycard colleagues saved over 500 tonnes of CO2, helping to make Barclaycard carbon neutral for its UK operations. In 2009, the aim is to become carbon neutral for the entire Barclaycard Global operation which has large operations in the US, Germany and South Africa amongst others.

Ben Brakes, Barclaycard’s Environmental Manager commented, “Barclaycard’s work to help colleagues reduce their impact on the environment paid great dividends in 2008 and we want to go one step further in 2009. By marking World Environment day we’re helping remind colleagues that this is a problem that affects everyone and we’re all in this together”.
