* Between 1 Jan 2018 and 30 Jun 2018, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with uSwitch saved £482 or more.

Gas and electricity prices are constantly changing, with any number of old energy tariffs being replaced by new price plans every month. If you’re looking to beat the latest energy price rises and cut the cost of your bills, it helps to keep one eye on the latest deals, particularly if your current contract is coming to an end.

What affects energy prices?

There are all kinds of reasons why of gas and electricity prices change, including supply and demand, availability, wholesale costs, transport costs, and infrastructure maintenance.

Even the consequences of a conflict or a natural disaster in an in oil-rich country can impact production and accessibility, which in turn will affect the price we pay to boil a kettle, or fire up the central heating here in the UK.

How to beat rising gas and electricity price rises

One of the simplest ways to beat any energy price increase is to compare the latest energy tariffs and tie yourself into a fixed rate deal – even if you only fix your energy prices for 12 months, this should be enough to dodge at least one round of price hikes.

It also helps to be more energy efficient – the less gas and electricity you use, the lower your bills will be – so consider how you can save energy around the home. This can involve some simple tweaks to your routine, such as dropping the thermostat by a degree and not leaving appliances on standby, or making some larger-scale changes, such as installing loft insulation, fitting a new boiler, and replacing old white goods with energy-saving models.
