Business energy users are being forced to look at ways to cut costs, such as by becoming more energy efficient and reducing waste.
This is the view of Richard Critchley, policy manager for transport, environment and planning at Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, who said the process can be difficult as businesses are treated differently from domestic users by energy suppliers.
"Any proposals that would enhance the rights of businesses and make it easier and more transparent for firms to switch to a cheaper energy deal would be welcome," he said.
"Importantly, the Ofgem review seeks to enhance the level of competition with the energy sector, which if successful, would help to drive innovation and lower costs - something all businesses would support."
Mr Critchley's comments come after research from energy supplier npower revealed 45 per cent of businesses would like the Carbon Reduction Commitment to be scrapped.
