‘Leaving Emissions Trading Scheme presents many risks’ – Energy Live News
Brexit continues to cause chaos across various sectors – now concerns have been voiced that leaving the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) would throw a spanner in the works of the UK’s efforts to regulate carbon emissions.
The Sun continues its war against the Big Six, claiming as a victory the recent Conservative manifesto pledge to place a price cap on standard variable tariffs. If you read last week’s news, you’ll know that the plan is controversial, with some saying that it will just lead to more expensive prices on fixed tariffs.
Scottish Power have reacted to the Conservative’s price cap pledge by proposing a new system of domestic energy – one that closely mirrors car insurance. Under the new model, deals would be scrapped in favour of a product that needs to be renewed each year. However the response to the announcement has been mixed, with consumer groups dismissing it as ‘nothing but a rebranding exercise’.
Could biomimicry revolutionise renewable energy? – Power Technology
Could copying nature bring about monumental shifts in renewable energy? Taking their cues from the natural world, scientists have been inspired by humpback whale fins, fern leaves and hummingbirds, creating innovative new technologies.

Aaron Gallagher recently helped me…
"Aaron Gallagher recently helped me switch the gas and electricity supply for our business. He was extremely helpful and well informed which was great for me as I know nothing in this area! He saved us a small fortune and dealt with all of the switch for us which again was extremely helpful as it wasn't completely straightforward. Thanks again for you help Aaron, it was so appreciated."This review was posted by Rachel on the 17th of February 2018
A better deal for our Village Hall
"I recently used this company to get a better energy deal for our local village hall. Other companies were quite pushy but Lorraine and Bhavni from SwitchMyBusiness were much more professional. They sent me useful information by email enabling me and the village hall committee to make a decision about which supplier to use. The switch was done by phone and when the energy provider sent the paper work to the wrong address Bhavni sorted it out straight away. I saved over £1000 for the charity."This review was posted by Irene Winter on the 16th of February 2018
