Energy crisis: what are the effects on rural businesses

To kick-off season 4 we share with you an episode on the current energy crisis. Energy prices are currently the highest the UK has ever seen with forward curve prices showing increases until 2025.


Charles Trotman, CLA Senior Economics and Rural Business Adviser, explains his forecast for the next 12 months, the potential knock-on effects, the rise of fertiliser prices and whether the Government is doing enough to support rural businesses, and thoughts on green hydrogen as fuel for the future. 


Peter McLeod, Director of Sales and Marketing at CLA Energy Services, explains the factors that have caused the cost of living crisis, what CLA Energy Services have been doing to help members during the energy crisis, and what to consider when looking at on-site generation.
