Energy bill ceiling: October, January, and April bills could each cost up to £3,687.

As the most recent forecast on the energy bill cap suggests that customers could be paying several hundred pounds more than predicted earlier this week, experts have advised “sitting down before reading on.”

According to an analysis by energy consultancy Auxilione, the price cap on energy bills could soar to a staggering £3,687 in October, nearly doubling the already record levels of today.

The 24 million households whose bills are subject to the price cap are also predicted to experience additional increases in 2023 by experts.

They calculated that the cap might reach about £4,400 in January, but they also included some qualifiers with their projections.

Because Ofgem, the energy regulator, modified the price cap regulations, Auxilione stated that it was double-checking its figures.

In order to “double check” that the outputs are accurate, we must redo our analysis this week before releasing today’s view.

Before reading on, make sure you are seated, it stated.

The experts predicted that the price could increase even more to £4,700 in April, but they cautioned that predictions this far in advance are more likely to be inaccurate.

If true, the price cap would be more than four times higher than it was prior to the beginning of the gas price crisis last year.

Falling prices won’t start until July, when they might reach £4,000, which is still twice where they are now.

According to Auxilione, the adjustments, which raised the January price cap by about £400 in comparison to the forecast released on Friday, were primarily brought about by new Ofgem regulations.

According to the statement, “On Thursday, Ofgem released their final models, which included some changes to allowances within the cap, such as recovering some of these over a shorter period of time.”

We’re not sure if these are displaying the right outputs after we’ve finished analyzing them.

Over the past 24 hours, we have compared our values with those of other analysts who appear to share our disbelief about the values.

The following is a list that Ofgem published today of what it calls “the wider benefits of a quarterly price cap”:

‘No forecast for next year is at all robust at this stage and will therefore have very limited value, especially for consumers who must always be the main priority,’ an Ofgem spokesman said. “The wholesale market continues to move extremely quickly.”

We would ask that all predictions for the price cap in January or later be treated with the utmost caution. Despite this, we cannot prevent others from making predictions.
