Electricity Industry - UK - November 2017
“Suppliers have sought to differentiate tariffs in a number of ways, including by offering discounts for online account management and rewards such as gift cards. Recently, there has been an increase in tariffs that track wholesale price changes, and tariffs that allow energy to be purchased in bundles.
Suppliers are also increasingly offering tariffs that include non-energy services, such as boiler maintenance and technology that helps people control their energy usage remotely via the internet. This trend is set to rise with more energy suppliers moving into the emerging ‘home services’ and ‘connected homes’ markets, as profit margins in the retail energy market become increasingly squeezed and with suppliers scrambling to differentiate their offerings to stay ahead.”
