Winter outlook: Manufacturers’ energy cost forecast for 2018 and beyond

Manufacturers are facing the tenth successive year of rising energy costs, largely due to the increase in taxes, levies and network ‘non-commodity charges’ that now make up 60% of a business’ energy bill. This report provides a forecast of energy costs for manufacturers over the coming months.

Over the past six months, volatility has returned to the wholesale market, pushing prices back to levels not seen for almost two years – in which time, non-commodity charges have risen by up to 25% for some organisations. Businesses now face the ‘double whammy’ of a rise on both sides of the bill.

As we approach a new year and the Brexit deadline looms, many manufacturers are concerned about the upcoming political and economic changes and how their bottom line will be affected.
