Contracts and tendering

Simplify energy buying decisions by using tried and tested strategies that deliver better business performance, and allow our team to do the leg work in finding and negotiating the best rates and terms.

  • Fixed Contract – all elements of the bill are fixed, giving you budget certainty for the term of the contract

  • Pass Through Contract – Some elements are fixed while some are open to market rates. Usually the wholesale rate is fixed and the 3rd party charges are ‘passed through’, which means consumption 

  • Flex Contract – all elements of the bill are open to market rates, with the wholesale rates locked in by our traders according to your chosen strategy

  • Renewable Energy – we can provide access to renewable energy contracts through all of the contract options. The energy is still the same, but your contract pledges to buy the power that you use from renewable sources

  • Negotiated terms – don’t underestimate the impact of payment terms, security deposits and ‘take-or-pay’ clauses on your business

Exceptional trading capabilities

We saved a UK-leading, insulation manufacturer £55,000 over 6 months by locking in their power supply before a major price spike.

A series of energy efficiency projects have since been implemented to eliminate energy waste.

Aggregation

Access energy buying products normally only available to the biggest energy users without having the volume to do so, by aggregating demand with businesses that share your vision for lower energy rates and improved terms.

  • We group businesses energy volume together and tender it under a ‘basket’ to access better energy buying products with more flexibility

  • Aggregated volume gives the basket more ‘clips’ of energy to trade, which means that higher return strategies can be deployed to achieve a better unit rate

  • Improved terms, such as take or pay, payment terms or service level agreements with suppliers

Budget and forecasts

Our procurement position reporting is the most comprehensive in the UK market, with live status reports on the energy hedged, unit rates achieved, combined with live market feeds that shows the future position and the total delivered cost of energy up to 4 years ahead. 

  • Create future financial budgets and models using accurate energy cost forecasts

  • Scenario modelling to see the ‘what if’ impacts of certain events or market movements on your business

  • Access the reports in PDF format through regular communication with your account manager or trader, or through our technology platform for a live view
