A recent Care Sector Energy tender run by Care England saw a reduction of 80% in renewal rates compared to August 2022 and also a 36% saving opportunity on energy renewals relative to current broker offers, and further helped recover over £3.8m of VAT from overcharges by energy suppliers. This has helped reduce energy costs for providers.

A recent article, Social Care Advisor Richard Ayres, which you can read here, highlighted opportunities and important information aimed to help care providers navigate energy contracts, including; broker commissions, VAT, KVA ratings and comparing energy quotes.
A useful user guide for the Energy Bill Support Scheme for Local Authority and Self-Funded residents can also be found here which can help care providers recover £400 per resident to cover the cost of rising energy.
