How to Become a Business Energy Broker

Many people know that becoming a business energy broker serving UK companies was once a highly lucrative enterprise. This is still the case but the way in which the broker must conduct themselves has changed dramatically.


Just after de-regulation, many chancers started commercial and business energy broker companies and sold cheap gas and electricity contracts to companies that were only too keen to jump on the rock bottom price bandwagon. Little did these establishments know that the dodgy brokers were only looking to take their cash and run.

Premier Broker

We at Utility Renewals have been a premier broker for British Gas Business and E-ON Energy for a number of years now, in addition to working closely the with other main suppliers. As such we have attracted stacks of would-be sub brokers – some with potential and some simply wanting to make a fast buck. The best of the sub brokers are still working with us today. We have excellent relationships with them all and know how to support them to ensure that they succeed alongside us.
