Yes, typically there are two types of energy contracts available: standing contracts and market retail contracts.
Standing contracts are electricity and gas contracts with terms and conditions prescribed by law. The incumbent retailer in your region is obliged to provide you with a standing contract if gas or electricity can be supplied to your property.
