A flexible contract allows businesses to take advantage of an ever-changing energy market when fixed price contracts are too restrictive. For larger energy users, we can help you take advantage of a volatile energy market and make sure you capitalise on market rises and falls. Our aim is to maximise contract flexibility whilst minimising your costs.
We have considerable experience in negotiating individual flexible energy supply contracts for our clients. We’ll analyse each offer, negotiate with each supplier and rank final offers against an appropriate scoring benchmark pre-agreed with you. From this, we’ll shortlist the leading suppliers and negotiate the best overall solution ensuring that you’re fully involved at each stage.
In developing energy supply contracts, we focus on a number of key deliverables from the supplier that will enable us to manage your market positions in the most effective way, including:
All negotiations are undertaken by your dedicated Account Director who will be your main point of contact and will manage the relationship with suppliers.
We’re proactive in developing new flexible products for clients and have strong relationships with all suppliers; we tender to the whole market so we can source your business the most suitable contract.
Our flexible clients are currently over £49m below budget for electricity.*
Collectively our clients are 19% below budget for gas.*
Contract negotiations achieved annual savings of 78% for a pharmaceutical company and more than £350,000 in contract fees over a 36 month period for a manufacturing client.*
Our flexible energy procurement service enables you to benefit from market falls, unlike fixed contracts, so you can lower your costs.
Presenting a flexible procurement option to your colleagues or to the board can seem riskier than the fixed alternative; we’ll give you peace of mind that you’re able to secure the best deal.
Tendering to all suppliers can be a lengthy and difficult process, as it can be hard to compare like-for-like contracts; Utilitywise can take care of this for you, saving you time and resources. We know where savings can be made and which suppliers can move on certain fees and clauses.
