Energy Prices August

When choosing the most competitive business energy rate for your business, it is important to look at the various factors that are affecting energy prices in order to secure the best energy rates for your business. Within this summary you will learn more about August’s energy market as well as how and why prices were impacted.

August overview

Energy prices in August were heavily impacted by the decline of the pound, which is heading towards its worst month since October 2016 as a result of continued fears of a no-deal Brexit. Crude oil prices dropped towards the end of the month with Brent Crude Oil losing close to $4/bbl in a single day, resulting in a positive impact on contract prices.

Contributing factors

Business energy prices in August were impacted by the following:

  • Coal usage to generate electricity remains at zero
  • A drop in wind generation and the strengthening of gas means contract prices are expected to increase
  • Brent crude oil has been trading at 7.3% less than in July
  • Sterling hit a 30 month low against the US dollar
  • Negotiations to end the trade war between the US and China are ongoing
