With soaring energy prices, billing complexities and looming legislative changes, choosing the right energy contract can be a minefield. It’s not just about finding the cheapest supplier – it’s also crucial for businesses to identify how they can use less to secure the best bottom-line wins.

Few organisations have the time or in-depth knowledge to undertake comprehensive reviews. So with energy costs spiralling, it can pay dividends to outsource this specialist role, says ENER-G Procurement.

The firm has published a free guide detailing how businesses can tap into the expertise offered by energy consultancies to cut costs, save valuable time and pinpoint the right deals.

Mark Alston, Director of ENER-G Procurement says: “Energy procurement consultants have their finger on the market pulse every day, so clearly have up-to-the-minute intelligence.”

“Whatever sector your business is in, an effective energy management strategy is essential. A thorough business audit will help you understand how and where you’ve been using energy, and will give you the means to target those areas that swallow up unnecessary power.”

Even if you already have an energy strategy, business operations – and needs – change. “An energy strategy is a living thing,” adds Alston.

He says: “Working patterns alter; buildings change; technologies improve. That’s why a regular review is important. Some experts can advise you on internal efficiency programmes, others will guide you through the tangled web of energy procurement, potentially sourcing smarter deals for the power and gas you still need.”
