New Confidence Code ‘stamp’ for energy comparison sites


Energy comparison websites that “make the grade” can now display a Confidence Code ‘badge’ which tells consumers they can trust the sites’ advice.

Ofgem proposed making the changes to the voluntary code of practice after its research found more consumers are using comparison sites to shop around for the best energy deals and switch suppliers.

It revealed 31% of people used a comparison service to move to a different energy company this year – up from 26% last year.
