Powering the Gas Industry with APIs
We are responsible for centrally managing and maintaining gas registration data on behalf of the gas industry in Britain.
To help improve the gas supplier switching experience for consumers, we host a number of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Giving access to gas consumer use data, they help our customers improve their business operations and increase efficiency.
Ultimately, our Gas APIs work to improve the supplier switching process. They help to make a better change of supply experience and increase the number of people choosing to switch and how often they move supplier.
What are APIs, how do they work and what do they do? This brief overview includes some common business scenarios where APIs are useful.
Gas API Services are available to gas industry customers working to support the improvement in the reliability of switching, and provide an enhanced consumer experience.
Eligible customers include:
- Price Comparison Websites (PCWs)
- Third-Party Intermediaries (TPIs)
- Gas Shippers and Suppliers
- Meter Asset Providers (MAPs)
You will need an active Gas API Service account with us to take part. Complete an API Services Application form and return it to the API Enquiries Team to get started.
