The author looks at the speculation that some major companies are shifting to domestic electricity and gas retailing in Great Britain as of 2011. He cites that the retailer Co-operative Energy has expressed interest in building an energy brand that will compete in terms of price, sustainability and customer service. He notes that the list of supply licence applications to the Office of Gas & Electricity Markets (Ofgem) indicates that an opportunity in the electricity and gas market has been recognised by a number of retailers.
