UK businesses, such as small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and manufacturing industry, have been hit hard since 2021 by the extraordinary increase in global energy prices. Although prices have come down in recent months, they are still more than double their pre-2021 values. In 2023, businesses are expected to cope with these increases and stay competitive in the context of price volatility.

In this webinar, we discussed the impacts of the energy crisis on UK businesses and how they can increase competitiveness and resilience to energy shocks in the future.

Speakers: Ahmed Gailani, University of Leeds; Arjan Geveke, Energy Intensive Users Group (EIUG); Friederike Andres, Federation of Small Businesses.
