Delivering Sustainable & Cost Effective Energy Solutions For Care Homes

Navigating the Energy Crisis in the Care Home Sector

In the wake of increasing energy prices and with another winter of economic uncertainty ahead, the UK care home industry faces a unique set of challenges. Energy costs have been on an upward trajectory over the past five years due to a confluence of factors. As care home providers grapple with rising electricity and gas expenses, finding sustainable solutions becomes paramount.

The main challenge facing care home providers is the cost of electricity and gas following the energy crisis of 2021 and 2022. Prices reached record levels by last August before starting to fall again from September onwards. However, the impact remains significant, especially for care homes that operate on tight budgets.
