Energy price rises are set to continue as Ofgem has announced the energy price cap has increased by 5%.

The announcement by the energy regulator Ofgem will mean typical energy bills will rise from the current cap level of £1,834 to £1,928 from the 1st of January. This rate will remain until March 2024 when a new cap is set.
