Nearly half of large energy users think political and regulatory uncertainty will hinder their investment in energy technology, according to a new survey.

British Gas polled more than 200 large energy users from the public and private sectors.

The cited political uncertainty created by Brexit and the General Election as concerns.

The poll also found that just over a third are struggling to convince their leadership team to let them invest in new energy technology.

‘Get proactive’

More than half of those surveyed believe that battery storage will be the biggest energy trend in the next decade.

Gab Barbaro, Managing Director of British Gas Business, said:

“Businesses must think long-term rather than be swayed by current political or economic uncertainty – there are countless opportunities for organisations to save money on their bills today, by getting to grips with how it’s being used and taking action where it’s being wasted.”
