What are energy claims?

Energy claims refer to legal actions or claims for compensation made by individuals, businesses, or organisations related to various issues within the energy sector. Energy claims typically arise when there are disputes, discrepancies, or unethical practices involving energy costs, services, contracts, billing, or other related matters.

Are you entitled to energy claim compensation?

Energy claims can encompass a wide range of situations; whether or not you are entitled to compensation will depend on your individual circumstances. The most common types of energy claims include:

  • Mis-Selling Claims: These involve situations where energy brokers or suppliers provide misleading or inaccurate information to customers when selling energy contracts, leading to financial harm or disadvantage. This is known as a mis sold energy claim.
  • Billing Disputes: Energy bills may contain errors, such as incorrect meter readings, tariff rates, or usage calculations, which can result in overcharges. Claims can be made to rectify billing discrepancies and seek compensation for overpaid amounts.
  • Contractual Disputes: Businesses may have claims against energy suppliers for breach of contract, failure to deliver promised services, or violations of agreed-upon terms.
  • Hidden Charges and Undisclosed Commission: Claims can arise if customers were not made aware of certain charges or fees associated with their energy services, such as undisclosed broker’s commissions built into the unit price, leading to unexpected costs. Hidden commissions for brokers or third party intermediaries are a common cause of business energy claims.
  • Supply Interruptions: If energy suppliers fail to provide consistent energy supply, leading to disruptions in business operations and financial losses, claims for compensation may be pursued.
  • Unfair Contract Terms: Claims can be made if energy contracts contain unfair or unreasonable terms that lead to financial harm for the customer. Some companies have been found guilty of trapping customers in longer term contracts without adequately clarifying the contract’s duration at the time of the energy deal purchase.
  • Regulatory Violations: Claims may arise when energy suppliers or intermediaries violate industry regulations, resulting in financial losses for customers.
  • Environmental Claims: These claims relate to environmental harm caused by energy production or consumption, such as pollution or health hazards, leading to requests for compensation or remediation.
  • Renewable Energy Claims: Businesses involved in renewable energy projects may seek compensation for damages or losses due to contractual disputes, equipment failures, or breaches of warranties.
  • Compensation for Energy Efficiency Programs: Claims can be made to access compensation or incentives for implementing energy-efficient practices or technologies.

Energy Claims Experts FAQs

What is the typical duration of an energy claim process from initiation to resolution?

The duration of an energy claim process can vary significantly depending on the complexity of the case, the cooperation of the parties involved, and whether the case is resolved through negotiation or goes to court. For simpler cases, especially those resolved through negotiation or mediation, the process might take a few months. More complex disputes, particularly those requiring court intervention, could take a year or longer. Factors such as the availability of evidence, the speed of communication between parties, and the court’s schedule can all impact the timeline.

What evidence is required to support an energy claim, and how can I best prepare my case?

Gathering the right evidence is crucial to the success of any energy claim. The specific evidence required can vary depending on the nature of the claim, but generally, you should aim to collect and organise the following:

Contracts and Agreements: Copies of any contracts or agreements you have with energy suppliers, brokers, or intermediaries. This includes the terms and conditions, any amendments, and related correspondence.

Billing Records: Detailed billing statements and records of payments. If you’re disputing charges, having a comprehensive history of your bills and payments is essential.

Communication Records: Copies of all communications (emails, letters, phone call logs) between you and the energy company, broker, or any other parties involved in your dispute. This can help demonstrate your attempts to resolve the issue and any responses (or lack thereof) from the other party.

Evidence of Misrepresentation: If your claim involves mis-selling or misleading information, any marketing materials, brochures, or written promises that show the discrepancies between what was promised and what was delivered.

Technical Assessments or Reports: For claims involving supply interruptions, environmental harm, or equipment failures, technical assessments or expert reports detailing the issue and its impact can be powerful evidence.

Financial Records: Documentation of any financial losses incurred as a result of the issue you’re disputing. This could include additional costs you’ve faced, loss of income, or any other financial damages.
