Rescue, Recovery, and Closure Options for the Energy Sector

Energy suppliers are undergoing a period of immense upheaval and market uncertainty, making planning for the future an almost impossible task. Energy company's are having to juggle ensuring adequate supplies of gas and electricity are available at fair prices, while also taking into account growing environmental responsibilities and still showing a profit to investors.

Escalating wholesale gas prices have sent the market into a tailspin, with many smaller providers who failed to hedge their prices going to the wall as a direct result. While the thinning out of the competition coupled with more customers looking for a safe and stable energy provider may seem like good news for those still operating in the industry, the reality is that there are huge challenges to be faced both financially and operationally.

Close your energy or utility company

If the pressures on your energy or utility company have become too great, it may be the case that options for closing the company need to be considered. As the director of an insolvent company, you have a legal responsibility to prioritise the interests of creditors and shield them from incurring any further losses. You can ensure you adhere to these responsibilities by seeking the services of a licensed insolvency practitioner at the earliest signs of financial distress. 

If your company's financial problems have become too great to manage, you can ensure an orderly winding down of the business and its operations by placing it into liquidation via a process known as a Creditors' Voluntary Liquidation (CVL). A CVL will bring about the end of your company and ensure all creditors are dealt with appropriately and in accordance with the Insolvency Act 1986.
