Over recent years, buying gas and electricity has become increasingly complex, with options previously limited to major users, now available to much more of the market. Prices peaked in 2008 at record highs and continuing price volatility means that businesses reliance on traditional energy procurement methods may need to be reviewed.
Most gas and electricity procurement is still undertaken through the traditional annual or biannual tender route, with the majority taking place in October and April, but this is not without its own significant price risks. If you end up going to market when prices are highest, your business could find itself paying 30-40% more than a competitor that arranges it’s tender at a different time. As the cost of energy usually represents one of the most significant areas of controllable expenditure, the case for re-examining purchasing methods is clear.
More flexible buying strategies are now available and those businesses that have adopted an innovative approach have seen significant cost advantages compared to those who continue to rely on annual fixed price contracts, negotiating only in the month or two before the renewal is actually due.
Our website explains in detail the main procurement options available to you and explains how each of these options defines the likely price outcomes. For each option, the benefits and risks are clearly explained. Every business will have a different risk tolerance, and so are encouraged to consider the risks and draw up strategies to minimise them while at the same time ensuring that the potential benefits are maximized.

Energy brokers can help managers and directors to find the best electricity and gas contracts for their businesses. Today, they are responsible for arranging over 60% of all UK energy contracts. This shows how useful using a broker can be.
Why should you use a broker like Energy Solutions, rather than relying on your own staff to handle energy contracts? Using a consultant provides a fresh and independent approach. As we work with suppliers on a day to day basis, we have access to information and can see market trends that may not be apparent to the casual observer. We are also able to provide our clients with access to account managers and our resources which they could not access directly.
Supplier relationships are an important factor. It is more cost effective for a supplier to manage a small range of brokers than a larger portfolio directly. This allows the supplier to focus more on service and delivery, while Energy Solutions add value and support our clients.
