The industry code changes to enable to this will come in to force on 6 November and Energy UK members have all committed to offering it by the end of the year. These code changes will also enable more streamlined switching of non-domestic customers.</p><p>The Department is also working with Ofgem to support their proposals for a longer term move to next day switching. A key element of this is the roll out of smart meters.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Great Britain operates as a single energy market and therefore competitiveness is assessed on that basis.</p><p>There are 25 energy suppliers currently operating in the domestic supply market, consisting of 6 major and 19 independent supply companies. Since May 2010, 12 new suppliers have entered the market and they have more than trebled their customer base. Independent suppliers now account for around 9% of the domestic retail market up from 1% in 2010.</p><p>The best way to keep everyone’s bills down is to help people to save energy, ensure fair tariffs and encourage competition. Ofgem’s measures to reform the retail energy market are making it simpler for consumers to understand. While the Government has ensured that everyone is on the cheapest tariff that their supplier offers (that meets their preference).</p> more like this
