Irish energy costs increase 57% year on year - isn’t it time your business took a serious look at your energy outlays?

According to The Irish Times  figures taken from the Bord Gais Energy Index show that the cost of energy increased by 57% in June compared to the same month last year, driven primarily by soaring gas prices. The index, which explores market developments and price movements in oil, gas, coal and electricity, was up 3 per cent compared with May, but its year-on-year increase of 57 per cent was the highest 12-month rise recorded since the index was developed.
