15th January 2024 marked the beginning of Energy Savers Week, which is a time to raise awareness about saving energy to reduce expenses and emissions. At Action on Energy, we focused on sharing information about saving energy in the home. To do this, we shared several posts on social media about the new energy price cap (which came into effect on 1st January 2024), top tips on saving energy from Citizens Advice and the Energy Saving Trust, and what support you may be able to receive from Action on Energy, including grant funded home energy efficiency measures and low carbon heating. You can have a look at these posts on our Facebook, Instagram, or X (twitter) pages.
During this time, we also worked with two Action on Energy partners, South Cambridgeshire District Council and East Cambridgeshire District Council to develop press releases about the new energy price cap and what home energy support is available to residents. Please access the press releases here:
This year’s Energy Savers Week was particularly important because the new Ofgem energy price cap which went into effect at the beginning of the year is set at £1,928 for a typical household who use gas and electricity and pay by Direct Debit. This was up from £1,834 during the period of 1st October – 31st December 2023, marking an increase of £94. You can read more about the energy price cap here. A new price cap is introduced every three months. The next price cap is set to take effect on 1st April 2024 will be announced by 23rd February 2024.
