The Energy Bills Discount Scheme (EBDS) is ending. How can businesses reduce their energy bills? 

The cost of utilities continues to be the most commonly cited cause of rising cost pressures, according to the Federation of Small Businesses. With the Energy Bill Discount Scheme (EBDS) ending in March 2024, how can businesses keep control of their energy costs? 

 

What is the EBDS? 

The EBDS is a business energy support scheme provided by the government. The scheme, which replaced the Energy Bill Relief Scheme in 2023, was designed to help those struggling with rising energy prices. Energy suppliers automatically applied reductions to the bills of all eligible non-domestic customers, offering businesses welcome relief on their energy bills. The scheme is due to end in March 2024. It is not currently unknown whether there will be further support or relief for businesses, making it important that business owners review their current contracts and practices ASAP – before the scheme ends.   

 

Could the end of the EBDS impact my business?

We firmly recommend that businesses review their tariffs and energy use as the EBDS ends. 

The impact of the end of the EBDS will vary depending on several factors, including the business’s size and type, its industry sector, and its energy consumption habits. However, many businesses are likely to see their energy bills increase significantly after the scheme ends. Impacts could include: 

  • Increased energy costs could reduce profit margins and impact cash flow.
  • Businesses may need to increase the costs of goods and services to cover price increases. 
  • Providers may continue to collect monthly tariffs at current rates, potentially resulting in underpayments when the discount is no longer in play. 
  • The Federation of Small Businesses has raised concerns about the impact of rising standing charges (a fixed daily fee you have to pay for energy, no matter how much you use). Reducing overall energy costs and reviewing tariffs is a good way to minimise the impact of these costs. 

 

Aren’t energy prices set to fall in 2024? 

Escalating wholesale market volatility, triggered by geopolitical factors, combined to drive up energy unit prices in January 2024. Despite a negative impact on consumer prices, research suggests that business costs have reduced and stabilised since last year. However, as the last few years have taught us, the market is volatile, making it hard to predict what will happen next. It is unlikely that prices will fall below the pre-”fuel crisis” levels. Whatever happens next with energy prices, the end of the EBDS will result in many businesses seeing a rise in their energy bills. 

 

How can I prepare for the end of the EBDS? 

Businesses can lessen the impact of the end of the EBDS, by taking some simple steps:

Ditch and switch (shop around!)

As consumers, we’ve all got used to shopping around, but do business owners apply the same bargain-hunting approach to business costs? Businesses should compare energy prices from a range of different suppliers. If your rate isn’t the best available, then make sure you ditch and switch. If you haven’t got the time, then speak to the experts, who can review your usage and find the best deal. 

Consider fixing energy prices

Fixing your energy prices can give you a sense of financial security, help you with forecasting and cash flow, and remove the impact of unexpected price spikes.  Nevertheless, before making a decision, it’s important to weigh up the pros and cons.

Review energy consumption

Businesses must review their energy consumption patterns. This will help to identify where savings could be made by implementing energy efficiency measures. 

 

My fixed energy tariff is ending, is now a good time to switch? 

Since Autumn 2022, business energy rates have dropped by significantly. If you opted to fix your rate when costs were higher, you may benefit from switching to a new contract when your fixed rate ends.  Start by assessing your current and future energy needs, check your contract terms, and compare both fixed and flexible rates from a range of providers. Better still, get our energy team to do the legwork for you, enabling you to benefit from lower costs without it costing you any time or money. 

 

Why should I outsource energy procurement? 

Business owners can avoid the headache of finding an affordable rate, managing the process and sorting the admin by handing the process to a reliable third party. 

Save money

Armed with information about your current rates and usage, the energy team can negotiate favourable rates with energy suppliers and reduce your energy bills by up to 75%. 

Save time 

Managing energy contracts and staying on top of market fluctuations can be time-consuming. Our process is simple. Simply let us know basic tariff and usage information (a bill and/or contract will do!) and we handle the entire process, making sure you have a hassle-free experience.

Get expert input

With petrol and diesel fuel cards also available, the new EV card completes a product range that services multi-fuel fleets. 

As well as an easy one-tap charging process, users of the Paua card can access an interactive charge point locator and map, allowing them to easily find the nearest EV charging stations for efficient recharging. With a network of 43,000 charger point connectors at more than 13,000 locations, charging is simple, fast and convenient. 

Servicing multi-fuel fleets

Niall Riddell, CEO at Paua commented “Collaborating with The Fuel Store is a significant milestone in enabling multi-fuel fleets to access the UK’s largest EV charge card whilst continuing to fuel their diesel vehicles.

DriverToolkit – Our NEW Web App To Help Fleet Drivers Manage Their Vehicles More Effectively

 

Commercial vehicles are essential parts of our economy and transport infrastructure. It is vital to ensure that all commercial vehicles are operating safely and regularly checked for any issues that may affect their performance.  

 

The Fuel Store’s main focus is to deliver the best possible fleet management solutions – one of which is our new web application, DriverToolkit. Our DriverToolkit is designed with fleet drivers in mind, allowing their various vehicle responsibilities to be conducted more efficiently.

 

Within the application, varying features will be made available for use – each being designed for a more specific purpose regarding the vehicle and driver. 

 

What Are My Responsibilities As A Fleet Vehicle Driver?

GOV.UK states that it is mandatory for drivers to complete visual, walk round checks of their vehicle and confirm the following are compliant with standards:

 

  • Lights
  • Tyres
  • Wheel Fixings
  • Bodywork
  • Trailer Coupling
  • Load and Other Equipment

 

In addition to the mandatory visual inspection, common vehicle safety checks that need to be performed are:

 

Brake Inspection

Ensuring the vehicle stops safely. Brake Pads, drums and rotors should be inspected for wear and tear with brake fluid levels being checked regularly.

 

Tyre Inspection

Tyres should be inspected regularly for any signs of damage, wear or underinflation. Proper tyre maintenance can improve fuel efficiency, increase lifespan, and improve safety.

 

Fluid Levels

All fluid levels including oil, coolant, power steering and transmission fluid, should be checked regularly to ensure the correct levels are maintained.

 

Lighting

All lights including headlights, taillights, brake lights and indicators need to be checked to ensure bulbs are working and there are no defects.

 

Steering

The steering system should be inspected for any looseness or play that can affect the driver’s ability to control the vehicle.

 

Electrical System

The electrical system and specifically the wiring should be inspected regularly to ensure no corrosion is present.

 

Why Are Vehicle Checks Important?

Commercial vehicle safety checks are crucial because they help to prevent accidents and ensure that the vehicle is in good condition and all components are working correctly. Regular safety checks can detect issues early, preventing the problem from becoming more severe and potentially causing an accident. 

 

It is a Statutory Compliant Requirement that commercial vehicles complete and pass a DVSA Inspection as failing to perform regular checks can result in fines and other penalties, so it is integral for drivers to ensure their vehicles are safe before beginning a journey.

 

Vehicles that weigh more than 3.5 tonnes will need to ensure DVSA inspections are completed daily, and it is crucial to remember drivers are responsible for confirming their vehicles are road worthy.

 

How Can The Fuel Store Help?

Inside our DriverToolkit, a feature called VehicleCheck allows efficient documentation of the condition of commercial vehicles ensuring they remain compliant with the latest inspection requirements.

 

  • £1.00 PER WEEK PER VEHICLE – UNLIMITED VEHICLE CHECKS
  • DVSA COMPLIANT – PEACE OF MIND
  • QUICK & EASY FAULT MANAGEMENT

 

What Should I Do If I Find Defects With My Vehicle?

As drivers are responsible for ensuring their vehicles are road worthy, they are additionally responsible for reporting defects within their vehicle.

 

According to GOV.UK, if a defect/s is discovered, drivers must report this to the individual in charge of monitoring vehicle defects within their organisation and include the following in their report:

 

  • Vehicle Registration/Identification Mark
  • Date of Inspection
  • Details of the defects
  • Name of individual reporting defects

 

In addition to our DriverToolkit, we also offer a vehicle tracking solution, providing you real-time insights into vehicle usage, vehicle journey history and much more! Learn more about FuelConnect here

 

If you’re looking for a compliance solution that will help streamline your operations, improve safety, and stay on top of legal requirements, then look no further than our NEW DriverToolkit.

 

Visit GOV.UK for additional information regarding the legal requirements of commercial vehicles and how to properly perform vehicle checks.

What Are The Perks and Benefits of Purchasing AdBlue and Diesel in Bulk With The Fuel Store?

 

In the modern world, businesses and industries heavily rely on diesel engines for their operations. As environmental consciousness grows, so does the need for more sustainable solutions. One such solution is AdBlue, a high-quality diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) that helps reduce harmful emissions.

 

To optimize efficiency and cost-effectiveness, many businesses are turning to bulk purchases of AdBlue and diesel. In this blog post, we will explore the perks and benefits of purchasing AdBlue and diesel in bulk.

 

1. Cost Savings

One of the most significant advantages of buying AdBlue and diesel in bulk is cost savings. Bulk purchases often come with substantial discounts compared to buying individual units. By purchasing in larger quantities, businesses can negotiate better prices and reduce the overall expenditure on fuel and AdBlue, leading to significant savings over time.

 

2. Convenience and Reduced Downtime

Bulk purchases offer convenience and eliminate the need for frequent reordering. With a steady supply of AdBlue and diesel, businesses can streamline their operations, reduce downtime, and maintain a seamless workflow. This saves valuable time spent on managing inventory and placing repeated orders, allowing companies to focus more on their core activities.

 

3. Enhanced Sustainability

AdBlue plays a vital role in reducing harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions produced by diesel engines. By purchasing AdBlue in bulk, businesses can contribute towards a cleaner environment by actively participating in emissions reduction efforts. Bulk purchases demonstrate a commitment to sustainable practices and help organizations meet environmental regulations more efficiently.

 

4. Improved Fuel Management

Bulk purchases of diesel fuel allow businesses to establish better fuel management systems. With large quantities of diesel readily available, companies can monitor fuel consumption patterns more effectively and identify areas where improvements can be made. This knowledge can lead to enhanced fuel efficiency, reduced waste, and ultimately, increased cost savings.

 

5. Reliability and Continuous Supply

Bulk purchases of AdBlue and diesel provide a reliable and continuous supply of essential fluids. Businesses that rely heavily on diesel engines can ensure uninterrupted operations by maintaining a sufficient stock of AdBlue and diesel. This is particularly beneficial for industries such as transportation, agriculture, construction, and logistics, where disruptions can be costly and result in significant delays.

 

6. Simplified Logistics

By purchasing AdBlue and diesel in bulk, businesses can simplify their logistics and supply chain processes. Coordinating fewer orders and deliveries reduces administrative burdens, transportation costs, and the overall complexity of managing fuel and fluid supplies. Streamlining these processes can lead to increased efficiency and improved overall operational performance.

 

7. Bulk Customisation and Flexibility 

Bulk purchasing often offers customisation options to meet specific business needs. Suppliers may offer flexible packaging solutions, including various container sizes or the ability to request customised packaging to fit unique storage requirements. This flexibility ensures that businesses can optimise their storage space and easily integrate bulk purchases into their existing infrastructure.

 

 

Bulk purchasing of AdBlue and diesel offers numerous perks and benefits for businesses that heavily rely on diesel engines. From cost savings and convenience to enhanced sustainability and simplified logistics, the advantages of purchasing in bulk are substantial. By embracing this approach, businesses can optimise their operations, reduce costs, and actively contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable future. So, consider the perks and benefits mentioned above and make a smart choice by opting for bulk purchases of AdBlue and diesel.

Forest Carbon – How Can We & Our Customers Help Reduce Carbon Emissions?

 

As companies become increasingly aware of their environmental impact, many are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Corporate carbon offsetting is becoming an increasingly popular way for businesses to mitigate the ecological damage caused by their emissions.  Here at The Fuel Store, we ensure we take precautions to reduce our carbon footprint in everything we do, we understand the damage this can cause to the environment.

 

What is Carbon Offsetting?

Carbon offsetting is a process where businesses reduce or eliminate their emissions by purchasing emission credits from a third-party provider. These credits are then used to fund green projects such as reforestation, renewable energy, and carbon capture. This is something we actively do to help us achieve this, we have partnered with Forest Carbon to not only assist The Fuel Store in becoming a greener company, but this is something we have opened up to our customers as well.

 

What Are The Benefits of Carbon Offsetting?

The benefits of corporate carbon offsetting are numerous. Offsetting emissions can help companies meet their sustainability goals, reduce their environmental impact, and even improve their public image. It can also be a cost-effective way to reduce emissions, especially when compared to the costs of changing business practices or investing in new technologies.

 

What Do I Need To Know?

There are a few key things we advise customers to consider when it comes to corporate carbon offsetting. First, companies should ensure that the offsets they purchase are verified and reliable. This means that the offsets should be certified, monitored, and reported in accordance with the highest standards. Our Customers are guaranteed to receive a certificate on a regular basis, informing them how much emission they have offset. In addition to this, companies should also ensure that the emissions reductions achieved through their offsets are permanent and long-term.

 

Finally, businesses should be aware of the potential risks associated with carbon offsetting. While offsets can help reduce emissions, the offsets may not always be verified, monitored, or reported in accordance with the highest standards. In addition, offsets may not always result in permanent emissions reductions. As such, companies should carefully evaluate the risks and benefits of corporate carbon offsetting before making a decision.

 

Overall, corporate carbon offsetting is a great way for businesses to reduce their environmental impact. By carefully evaluating the risks and benefits of corporate carbon offsetting, companies can ensure that their offsets are reliable, verifiable, and permanent. In doing so, companies can help mitigate the environmental damage caused by their emissions while also improving their public image.

Fraud Guard, How The Fuel Store Can Offer Protection For Your Business And Fuel Cards

 

Fuel card fraud can be a growing concern for many businesses that rely on fuel cards to manage their fuel expenses. It is, therefore, increasingly critical for businesses to take proactive measures to protect themselves. Fuel card fraud can be incredibly costly for businesses. As technology continues to advance, so do the methods that are used to commit fuel card fraud. Fuel card misuse can occur in various ways such as unauthorised purchases, fuel theft, and double dipping. Unauthorised purchases happen when the cardholder uses the fuel card for non-fuel purchases; fuel theft occurs when an individual steals fuel with the fuel card and double dipping happens when the cardholder uses the fuel card to get cash advances.

 

The following are warning signs which may indicate your fuel card is being used illegitimately:

 

  • Too frequent fuel fill-ups
  • Fuel charges don’t match mileage or tank capacity
  • Charges from another/inconsistent site location

 

This, therefore, presents an increasing need for fraud protection services. A solution The Fuel Store provides is Fraud Guard, which can help safeguard your cards from fraud and misuse.

 

How can The Fuel Store’s Fraud Guard help you?

 

At The Fuel Store, we understand fuel card fraud is not easy to notice and it can take a while before you notice inconsistencies. This is why we have a simple process to help you deal with potential fraud:

 

  1. If you begin to suspect one of your cards is victim to fraudulent activity, contact the customer service team as soon as possible.
  2. The fuel card in question will be placed on stop to prevent further fraudulent use.
  3. Following the stoppage, an investigation will be conducted regarding the card’s activity to determine the facts and gather evidence.
  4. Once the investigation has concluded and sufficient information has been gathered, your account manager will provide you with a detailed report, along with the outcome.
  5. If you were a victim of fraud, a credit note will be placed on your account. Once we receive payment to cover the fraudulent activity, you be granted a refund within 30 days

 

What are some of the best practices for fuel card security?

 

To ensure your fuel card is secure, businesses should implement employee training programs on fuel card use, implement a fuel card management system and regularly monitor fuel card transactions. Regular monitoring of fuel card transactions is critical for businesses to ensure that there is no fraudulent activity on their fuel card accounts. Similarly, at The Fuel Store, you can contact your personal Account Managers who can give you a breakdown on where your fuel cards were spent on how much providing you with further insight into your fuel card usage.

 

There are many ways for businesses to be susceptible to fraud use on their fuel cards. Signs of fraudulent use on fuel cards can include too frequent fuel ups, charges don’t match tank capacity and getting charged inconsistently from various locations. There are similarly various techniques that can be employed to mitigate fraud card use such as better training, management systems or transaction monitoring. The Fuel Store provides business with Fraud Guard – a service that covers businesses should fraudulent spending take place on any of their fuel cards.
