Energy Procurement

Energy Procurement


With suppliers offering a range of fixed and flexible supply contracts it really can be difficult knowing what is right for you.

The energy markets remain as volatile as the stock markets and tracking prices to capitalise on any falls is proving to be the most effective way of minimising costs on your next contract.

Our approach is to ask the right questions, analyse the responses and report a balanced view of the options considering:

  • Energy price
  • Contract Duration
  • Fixed or Pass Through of Third party charges
  • Green or brown energy
  • Credit appraisal
  • Take or pay commitments

We also consider less obvious issues like:

  • Evaluating Third Party Charge variations between short and long contracts to get a true comparison
  • Aligning group contract end dates
  • Reducing contract costs through seasonal advantage (e.g. 2 summers and 1 winter)

We provide an impartial comparison so clients can see which option offers the lowest cost and least risk of price variation during the contract.

We advise clients with credit issues on Parent Company Guarantees or products with no deposit in return for a higher contract rate.

We report Take or pay commitments, especially if there is a possible variance in consumption which cannot be controlled, such as the failure of a CHP unit.
