PROCUREMENT

“I need expert energy procurement help”

Procurement

We provide our clients with a wide range of procurement activities. We’re engaged to help solve what are often complex problems and often under significant time pressure.

The Challenges

ENERGY IS A TECHNICAL AREA

Many areas of energy require specific expertise and experience to successfully deal with – something many companies lack in-house

SUPPLIERS KNOW MORE THAN YOU DO

There’s a significant imbalance between the knowledge suppliers have and your internal teams – something suppliers are expert at exploiting

MISTAKES CAN BE HUGELY COSTLY

Energy is one of the biggest cost areas of every business. Making the wrong decisions can have implications that last for years. It’s not uncommon for the scale of avoidable costs to run into the millions

Key Activities

PROCUREMENT

We frequently help with general procurement activities, such as market analysis, sourcing, tendering, negotiating, contracting, and so on

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Occasionally clients get themselves into difficult situations with suppliers. If it occurs, we’ll ‘sit on the same side of the table’ as you and help you to negotiate your way through what are often complex situations.

STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT

The right long term aims and plans are essential for long term success. We help clients to develop their energy strategy. And we help develop the category strategy to deliver the long-term energy ambitions.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE CONTRACTS

Energy Performance Contracts (EPCs) can work well. But they can go disastrously wrong. They have to be set-up correctly from the outset. We’ll help you to avoid the expensive errors others have made and ensure the bulk of the benefit goes to you.

PRIVATE WIRES & PPAs

 Behind the meter’ generation solutions require analysis of risks (such as price, credit and imbalance) and an understanding of the payoffs between Opex and Capex.

BUYING GREEN ENERGY

Some green certificates are more equal than others. We shine a light on what you’re buying, from where and benchmark this against the market and the drivers of future costs.

BENEFITS

Benefit from our decades of procurement experience to fast track you to the right answer, and avoid mistakes others have made. We know what suppliers want and facilitate their engagement and interaction.
