Effective energy purchasing

Energy is often a major business overhead, accounting for a large proportion of overall running costs. So being able to create a purchasing strategy to fit your requirements and risk appetite is crucial.

We offer a range of contracts that can enable you to buy electricity or gas on a fixed or flexible basis, with options to tailor elements to suit your business.

Flexible energy contracts

The energy market is notoriously volatile, creating risks as well as opportunities. Our range of flexible contracts enables you to spread purchasing decisions throughout the year, leaving you less vulnerable to market peaks and better placed to take advantage of lower prices.

Renewable Energy for Business

With net zero on the horizon, finding ways to reduce emissions is more important than ever. Perhaps the simplest way is to opt for carbon-free supply.

Our Business Renewable energy provides independently-verified sustainable power that’s also fully compliant for zero-carbon reporting. 


It works by matching the power you consume with the equivalent volume of renewable power supplied to the grid. We evidence this by securing the corresponding number of Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO) certificates, which are issued for each megawatt-hour (MWh) of renewable generation fed into the UK electricity system.

Benefits

  • A simple way to benefit from renewable power sources
  • Enables you to clearly demonstrate renewable credentials
  • Fully compliant with World Resource Institute GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance
  • EcoAct assurance stamp provides peace of mind that our products and processes are robust and compliant
  • Report zero-carbon emissions without any requirement for additional evidence
  • Available with any of our Fixed or Flexible purchasing contracts

Option for your customers to display an Energy Label at their sites as a visual demonstration of their commitment to sourcing renewable power.
