A flexible energy contract allows organisations to take advantage of an
ever-changing market.

Public sector organisations must procure energy through an OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union) compliant process. Organisations such as Local Authorities, NHS Trusts, MOD, central government departments and educational establishments are all covered by this legislation. The public sector energy market consumes 19.4TWh of electricity spread over 8,000 electricity supply contracts.

A flexible energy contract allows organisations to take advantage of an ever-changing market where fixed price contracts are too restrictive. Utilitywise has vast experience in procuring OJEU-compliant contracts, adhering to all regulations involved.

How Utilitywise can help

Our Public Sector Energy Portfolio is an innovative fully risk-managed, flexible purchasing solution tailored to the unique requirements of Public Sector bodies. The service offers full compliance with the OJEU tendering process, as we have an existing framework in place with a contracting authority for organisations to join. It’s ideal for universities, colleges, NHS trusts or housing associations looking for an alternative to fixed contracts or for those who find their current flexible contracts too restrictive.

Utilitywise has already assembled a group of sizeable energy users from the Public Sector to qualify for a fully-flexible energy contract. Our innovative solution benefits from group buying power, best-practice Energy Risk Management and an excellent track record. The Utilitywise Public Sector Energy Portfolio offers choice and flexibility, even once the contract has started.

Our tailored solution delivers consistent results irrespective of your risk appetite or prevailing market conditions. Throughout the service, you will have the support of a dedicated Account Director. They are highly trained in resolving queries and liaising with energy suppliers. A specialist in our Portfolio service, your Account Director will tailor our service to ensure it meets your individual requirements; your strategy is tailored so you can buy and sell up to the point of delivery or secure your costs with a fixed contract.
