Flexible Purchasing Strategy

Fully risked managed

A flexible energy procurement contract allows you to spread the risk of energy procurement by making a number of discrete purchases during the lifetime of your contract period, rather than placing undue pressure on a single buying decision. Exercising careful timing, it is possible to manage price volatility and reduce cost by making your purchases across a series of advantageous market conditions.

Our approach

Determine the right procurement strategy to provide for your budgetary requirements and attitude to risk.
