Flexible Procurement

Balance price optimisation with your appetite for risk

Price optimisation through flexibility

If you are wishing to take advantage of the benefits that a flexible supply agreement combined with the right risk management strategy can bring., a customised flexible procurement strategy could offer you the level of risk, certainty and price opportunity you’re looking for.

Our Risk Management team work with you to understand your goals then develop and implement a bespoke trading strategy to optimise your energy price. We’ll seek to optimise price via our award-winning trading team and provide you with reports on our trading performance and cost forecasting, keeping you informed and in control.

Flexible energy purchasing best suits organisations consuming above 10GWh of power per annum and/or above 1 million therms of gas. However, smaller businesses can also benefit from flexible procurement by choosing an Options Portfolio product, which groups them together with other small businesses in one flexible buying contract.

Our flexible purchasing approach enables you to make multiple buying (or selling) decisions it is the multiple buying (or selling) decisions that enable a trading strategy to be applied.  There are many different strategies that can be applied – Inenco seek to match your goals with the best strategy and we will lead this process.

We will also work to understand what commercial terms you require within the supply contract and what flexibility will be needed in supply contract to enable the strategy to be delivered. We will then negotiate the best supply contract and terms available for these requirements.

Focussing on optimising the energy price, our Energy Trading Team will keep you updated on market trends and trading recommendations as to when we should buy, or sell. Some clients delegate trading decision responsibility to us.

“We agree the right strategy for your business, negotiate the best supply contract that enables this and minimise supply contract costs. Our Trading team then use their expertise to optimise price.”
