All of the energy companies that have gone bankrupt this year, as well as those that are in jeopardy.

According to industry estimates, the number of energy suppliers in the UK market might be reduced to just ten by Christmas.

As a result of the UK’s gas price problem, some small energy companies have gone bankrupt, unable to cope with the rising costs. Now, industry experts predict that the market will contract much further in the following months.

In the previous year, 15 companies have gone bankrupt, and for the first time, a ‘cheap’ fixed energy package is now more expensive than variable rates, which have traditionally been the most expensive in the market.

In Liverpool, a Ryanair plane was forced to make an emergency landing.

The best-fixed agreements have been fully pulled due to rising wholesale gas prices, with providers boosting their rates to compensate for the out-of-control gas prices.

With growing prices, the energy price cap is anticipated to rise again next April, with a £178 annual increase.

Since the beginning of the year, wholesale gas prices have climbed by 250 percent, with a 70 percent increase in August alone being the final straw for a number of suppliers.
