A new website which lets energy end users ‘build an energy policy’ on how they handle power has just been launched.
Energy users can browse policies and save ones they like the look of, similar to using an online ‘shopping basket’.
Created by consultancy Amber Energy, the website sets out jargon busters for the electricity sector and guides on whether a firm needs voltage optimisation or triad alerts, for example.
Nick Proctor, Director and Founder of Amber Energy told ELN: “We developed it because we think the energy sector is overly complicated. Other sites only seemed to complicate it more.
“When you’re an energy manager or a finance director, there are tons of acronyms, DCDAs, CCLs. What we figured people actually need is just a really simple process that’s transparent and allows them to work out the things they need before it gets complicated. You can work out what will add to your business and what will save you money,” he added.
The consultancy man went on: “The site allows you to go through the site and almost at any time add to a sort of ‘shopping cart’ but actually you’re adding to your own policy. As you come across things you decide your business needs, you can click on it and add to your policy.”
He explained: “Once you’ve done that, you can click to collect your energy policy from us and that allows us to send across the detail you need just to start you off, as far as you need to build your policy in-house.”
