Energy Cost Management

Keep control of your energy costs

The energy marketplace is shifting continuously, making it trickier to navigate effectively when trying to stay on top of your energy costs. Securing the right energy contract for your business is a complex task, heightened recently by external factors causing greater price volatility. The knock-on effect being increased costs on your energy bills – even if you have experienced a reduction in your consumption.  

The current situation creates the need to explore the different avenues that will contribute to reducing risk and protecting your budget.

Our cost analysis team are experts in identifying and implementing cost saving opportunities that are often missed by customers and consultants alike.

Revenue Recovery

Conducting a thorough forensic audit of your utility spending can help identify any errors or overcharges in your invoices, which can be used to recover money from your suppliers.


Our Pulse platform provides all your portfolio and budget information in one place so that you don't need to go searching through spreadsheets, invoices and e-mails to understand what's happening with your energy spend and portfolio.

Corporate PPAs

PPA's are long-term contracts, where companies will agree to purchase electricity directly from a renewable energy generator. Solar and wind farms are the most common renewable energy generators that are grid connected.


Risk Management

Adopting the most appropriate purchasing strategy for your business helps you manage risk appropriately. Matching your procurement strategy to your expectation of risk and reward is an important step in taking control of your energy budgets.

Subsidy Management

Understanding which subsidies your organisation is eligible to benefit from can be challenging and time consuming to manage. We take a proactive approach to ensure organisations benefit fully from renewable subsidies offered by the Government.

Triad Avoidance

Triad (TNUoS) charges can be expensive, organisations that do not consume electricity in the three half-hour periods avoid these charges. Signing up to Triad alert systems and implementing load shifting techniques will help avoid these charges annually.
