Consumers who want to switch gas or energy suppliers are being reassured that the UK should have enough gas and electricity to last through the winter.
National Grid's winter outlook report predicts a slightly lower electricity peak demand than the winter of 2009-10, while gas is slightly higher, following last year's series of alerts issued to business energy recipients to cut back on their usage.
Even in the event of a harsh winter, "gas and electricity demand is manageable and should be met", the report states, adding that there will be more than enough capacity because of an expected increase in the amount of liquefied natural gas being imported to the UK.
The network operator also points out that power stations are likely to boost gas generation as more capacity comes on stream.
It comes after a report from Consumer Focus Wales found almost two-thirds (62 per cent) of over-65s are worried about meeting utility bills this winter compared with just over half (52 per cent) of the general population.
