In 2020, 500,000 households spend € 600 too much on their energy. This amount can rise to € 3,450 for some 20,000 SMEs (source: CREG).  The reason: ‘dormant contracts’ whose prices are significantly higher than active products. To assess this additional cost, the regulator has developed CREG Scan. This tool is the first step when it comes to switching supplier. However, it doesn’t take into account any current special offers and doesn’t allow you to switch supplier. This is where, the first CREG-certified comparison tool, comes in. It covers these various aspects so that you can choose the best contract on the market in just a few clicks.

In 2020, electricity and gas prices have fallen to record low levels. This is due to a variety of causes. One of these is obviously the economic slowdown caused by the COVID-19 health crisis. Added to that, however, are weather conditions that favour the generation of solar and wind power, good levels of availability at nuclear power plants, a particularly mild winter, etc. In short, the reserves and capacities are full, while demand is falling.

This means that Belgian households have every reason to switch energy supplier as we write this text! CREG noted price variations clearly to the advantage of households between September 2019 and September 2020:

September 2020September 2019
Average yearly cost of electricity (consumption of 3,500 kWh)€ 824.70€ 890.40
Average yearly cost of natural gas (consumption of 23,260 kWh)€ 867.80€ 1,031.10

In 2019, 360,000 households were in possession of a dormant contract. One year later, this figure rose to 500,000 households (+40 %). Those ones could potentially save up to € 265 a year for electricity and up to € 374 a year for gas. As  you can see, these are far from being small sums.

How can I efficiently switch supplier?

When it comes to taking out a new contract, 50 to 60 % of households choose one of the ten most expensive products on the market.

“Almost 1.8 million households have one of the 10 most expensive variable contracts on the market, while just 128,000 households have one of the 20 least expensive contracts on the market,” CREG stresses.

This is why it is essential to compare the various offers available using certified tools. In practice, this involves two stages:

First of all, go to CREG Scan to assess where your contract stands in relation to the cheapest and most expensive prices on the current market. This initial stage allows you to decide whether or not it is useful to switch supplier.

If it is, use a certified online price comparison tool to find the best price offer based on your consumption profile. The comparison tool also enables you to switch supplier.
