British Gas

British Gas is the UK's leading energy company.

We are an energy and home services provider in the United Kingdom. British Gas is the trading name of British Gas Services Limited and British Gas New Heating Limited, both subsidiaries of Centrica. Serving around twelve million homes in the UK, British Gas is the biggest UK energy supplier and is considered one of the Big Six energy suppliers dominating the gas and electricity market in the United Kingdom.more

The brand British Gas remains from the demerger of the British Gas Corporation in 1997, which formed Centrica, BG Group and Transco. The British Gas Corporation was a result of the restructuring of the UK gas industry following the Gas Act 1972. The act merged all of the area boards and created the British Gas Corporation.

The British Gas Corporation was privatised as British Gas plc by the Thatcher government and on 8 December 1986 its shares were floated on the London stock market.

In 1997, 11 years after it had been privatised, British Gas de-merged to become the entirely separate BG Group and the Gas Sales and Gas Trading, Services and Retail businesses. The Gas Sales and Gas Trading and Services and Retail businesses, together with the gas production business of the North and South Morecambe gas fields, were transferred to Centrica, which continues to own and operate the British Gas retail brand.

British Gas is led by its Managing Director, Mark Hodges, who oversees a business that provides energy and services to 11 million homes and employs over 28,000 staff based across the UK.less
