Our partnership with NHS Shared Business Services

Bringing award-winning private sector energy trading to the public sector, with fully OJEU-compliant Strategic Energy Solutions.

The Utilitywise Corporate Division – now EIC – has partnered with NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS) to deliver the Official Journal of European Union (OJEU) compliant energy buying and management solution for the NHS.

We’ve been chosen by NHS SBS as a preferred energy procurement and management provider. The solution is aimed at NHS Trusts who spend a collective of £6.5bn per annum maintaining and running their estates and need to achieve savings of £22bn by 2020.

A compelling alternative to traditional public sector frameworks, we aim to solve the issues faced in the sector. These include limited choice over energy partner, low levels of consultancy account management, limited buying options, poor energy data visibility and inaccurate supplier billing.

Our solution brings award-winning private sector energy buying to the public sector providing, the Trusts with many benefits such as full cost transparency, market-leading account management support, and greater choice and control.

We can help NHS Trusts with:

Smart Procurement

Our fully OJEU-compliant energy procurement solution ‘Portfolio’ is a real alternative to traditional, more restrictive frameworks.

Our Portfolio is a group purchasing solution. It provides access to a fully flexible contract with best practice Risk Management and an excellent track record. It is tailored to the requirements of NHS Trusts and unique in its approach, as each individual within the group is able to maintain their own strategy.

Intelligent Buildings

Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC), fire alarms, and surveillance are all critical business systems within NHS Trusts. In most buildings they operate on separate systems, each with its own license and maintenance contract. This can be restrictive, costly to maintain and time consuming to manage and control.

We can integrate all your business systems into one platform, allowing you to manage and control all systems across all your sites simply and remotely. This can save you up to 20% on your operational costs with a return on investment of less than 12 months.

Trusted Compliance

NHS Trusts have been set a challenging carbon reduction target of 80% by 2050. We appreciate that this may be daunting so we’re here to support you.

We’ll keep you compliant with legislation, maximise your CO2 savings, and boost your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) credentials. We can offer a full review of your Trust to assess your legal obligations and compliance status. We’ll provide you with a compliance report that will summarise our findings, explain the legislation and outline your next steps.
