Market Information

We publish some of the information we collect from REMM in the form of monitoring reports that aim at increasing transparency over the retail energy markets. The Quarterly Transparency Reports (QTRs) and Annual Transparency Reports (ATRs) provide a range of information about the retail energy market in Northern Ireland.  This includes data on switching rates, market shares, and energy prices.  The data included in these reports come mainly from network companies, energy suppliers, the Department of Business Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Eurostat.

We publish updated electricity prices biannually within the Quarterly Transparency Reports (QTRs).  The electricity prices are published using the same format and methodology as the Department of Business Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).  As a result the average prices for Northern Ireland are comparable with prices in other EU countries (those published in BEIS’s Quarterly Energy Prices reports and Eurostat data base).

The base figures are all submitted on a quarterly basis by suppliers, split by domestic and non-domestic (I&C). The UR performs a high level reasonableness check of the base figures, but the suppliers are responsible for the accuracy of the information that is provided to the UR.
