Question for Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

UIN 125266, tabled on 18 February 2022

The energy price cap on standard and default domestic supply tariffs was put in place in response to the problem of the ‘loyalty penalty’ as identified by the Competition and Markets Authority’s energy market investigation.

The maximum price set by Ofgem for resupplying gas or electricity which has already been bought from an authorised supplier, exists to protect people such as those who are residents of mobile park homes and buy their fuel from the park owner.
