Energy procurement is important for any business. We can help.
Energy procurement is a problem for many businesses… but it doesn’t have to be. The right approach to energy procurement can reduce your operating costs and increase your profits.
But what is the right approach?
Energy procurement can be complicated. We make it simple. We work with some of the UK’s leading energy suppliers to offer our customers great deals on their energy.
What is am Energy Management Plan?
An Energy Management Plan is a unique energy management solution. It covers everything from energy procurement to energy and water efficiency surveys. It’s a great way to reduce your consumption and find those hidden profits.
An Energy Management Plan can include:
- AMR Meter: With an AMR meter, you don’t need to read your meter. Your bills will be accurate and up to date every month.
- Dataview energy management software
- Openview energy procurement software
- An Energy Efficiency Audit will identify how and where you can save energy in your business.
- Account Management: Our account management team can answer any question you may have about your energy accounts.
Business energy procurement
We offer a wide range of business energy procurement services, including:
- Fixed price energy contracts: fixed energy contracts are great for businesses and other organisations looking for budget certainty. When you sign a fixed energy contract, your price is set on that day for the duration of your contract. You’ll know exactly how much you’re paying for energy every month.
- Flexible energy contracts: flexible energy contracts are perfect for large organisations looking to buy gas and electricity directly from the wholesale market. With a flexible energy contract, you can take advantage of price drops on the energy market in order to make savings.
- Portfolio energy contracts: portfolio energy contracts offer the benefits of flexible energy contracts to businesses that don’t consume enough energy to buy directly from the wholesale market.
- FixedFlex contracts: fixed price energy contracts are great for budget certainty, but they can leave you feeling like you’re paying over the odds if energy prices fall. With a FixedFlex contract, you can renegotiate your price at any time during your contract. The only condition is that your new price is fixed for another 12 months.
