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 doesn’t have to be complicated. We keep it simple. We work with most of the UK’s energy suppliers to find our customers great deals on their energy.
Our energy procurement team are specialists in negotiating contract terms with suppliers to ensure that your business gets the best possible deal. We look at your business energy portfolio and overall objectives to recommend the services and suppliers best suited to your needs. Once we have your agreement to proceed, we’ll put a strategy in place and you can leave us to do the rest. We’ll keep you regularly updated and provide you with all the information you need to make key decisions easily.
Buying your business electricity on a fixed price contracts is the least risky approach but you still need a partner who can help you buy at the best price at the lowest point in the market. In a volatile energy market, fixed price contracts give you budget certainty and control over your costs.
Our basket purchasing scheme enables all our clients to take advantage of significant economies of scale. We do this by co-terminating contract end dates, grouping clients with similar needs together and tendering for them as a group to help you achieve a better deal.
Flexible price contracts are based on carefully created, bespoke risk management plans. These contracts offer variable wholesale commodity costs based on buying decisions made by our trading team and agreed with our clients. Buying strategies of this nature allow you to take advantage of prices in forward markets when they are at their most attractive.
Pass Through Contracts
Pass-Through Contracts differ from fully fixed contracts in that only the contract duration and wholesale element of your price is fixed for the entire supply duration. All other non-commodity costs including transmission, distribution & government taxes and levies are passed through to the consumer via their supplier at cost.
