UKHospitality (UKH) has published its energy advice, guidance and cost calculator to help hospitality manage the rising costs in energy.

Previously only available to UKH members, the advice covers the Energy Bill Relief Scheme as well as a Q&A to help businesses through the process.

There is also an energy calculator to help businesses budget for future energy costs.

“As we head into winter, many businesses will be extremely concerned about what is in store with energy prices eye-wateringly high. We know that our sector is feeling the pinch more than most and that is why we’ve taken the decision to make our expert guidance available to all," says UKH chief executive Kate Nicholls.

“The Government’s Energy Bill Relief Scheme is in place to reduce the unit price businesses pay for their energy but navigating these schemes can be a challenging process, so we want to offer as much help as possible.

“This is a perilous situation for the sector and UKHospitality will continue to ensure the Government is fully aware of the existential threat that inflation and energy bills combine to create.”

“Energy prices are pulverising businesses like ours, it's brutal . However it’s reassuring to know that UKHospitality is working hard with the government to ensure the sector gets the support it needs," says Phil Thorley, Director of Thorley Taverns.

“Navigating some of these schemes is complicated though and I consider the resources available to UKH members essential in my understanding of how the schemes apply to my business. Access to these resources, as well as other benefits such as webinars, have already paid off for me and I know they will continue to be incredibly useful over the next few months.”
