At 308.6 million cubic metres (mcm), UK gas demand was around 26.5 mcm below the seasonal norm on Tuesday, according to National Grid data.

However, businesses are being told not to take this as a sign that energy tariffs for business customers are going to follow suit.
"Don’t fall into the mistaken belief that the price cuts being announced are going to be passed onto business customers. It’s not true," Nick Heath, spokesperson for energy broker Make It Cheaper told GreenWise. "If businesses sit back and do nothing, they are actually going to see their tariffs go up because roll-over rates are actually 50 per cent higher."
According to research commissioned, last year, by Make It Cheaper from the Centre for Economics and Business Research, by the end of 2012, business gas and electricity prices are actually expected to go up by 15 per cent.http://www.greenwisebusiness.co.uk/news/businesses-told-not-to-be-fooled-by-big-six-energy-prices-cuts-2969.aspx#

The business, founded in Bolton in 1876, reveals in its first Corporate Responsibility Review published today (January 5) that it currently sources no power at all from renewables. However, according to the report that is all set to change with plans for solar, wind and Anaerobic Digestion (AD) all mooted. The report states the business, which has locations in Bolton, London, Nottingham and elsewhere, has a total roof space of 1.27m square feet making installing solar 'a real possibility'. Although the report makes no reference to Feed-In Tariffs (FITs), which could have benefitted the business had it invested in solar earlier. It does though indicate wind 'may also be an option' for some of its bakeries.

Figures released by the Department for Energy and Climate Change show renewable sources generated 9% of the UK's electricity from July to September this year - an increase of 1% on the same period the previous year. It highlighted the fact that the amount of electricity generated from offshore wind has increased "substantially" compared to the same quarter in 2010, partly because of increased capacity and partly because it was the windiest September for at least 10 years. The Greater Gabbard wind farm off Suffolk is now operational, and there will be further developments in the year ahead including East Anglia One and the Galloper Wind Farm, which moved a step forward earlier this month after passing a planning hurdle.
