James Brabben Wholesale Manager spoke to Energy Live news about the gradual rise in energy demand back up towards 2019 levels since July . He attributed the rise in demand for a few reasons. This includes the relaxing of lockdown measures and businesses opening back up. As well as the warm weather spell causing higher demand for air conditioning and cooling.
