Flexible Procurement

Balance price optimisation with your appetite for risk

Price optimisation through flexibility

If you’d like to take advantage of the full flexibility of the wholesale electricity and gas markets, a customised flexible procurement strategy could offer you the level of risk, certainty and price opportunity you’re looking for.

Our award-winning energy trading team work with you to understand your goals then develop and implement a bespoke strategy to optimise your energy price and meet your business objectives. We’ll 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.

 
Minimise risks and maximise price benefits

Our flexible purchasing approach enables you to make multiple buying decisions, with full control over when you buy and how much energy you buy each time. We can monitor and manage your flexible purchasing decisions for you, using our knowledge of the market and of your business to secure you the optimum price for your energy.

The key advantage of flexible procurement is that you aren’t locked into a fixed contract, so you can take advantage of lower prices in bearish markets. However, you also run the risk of buying during a bullish market – but a price risk management strategy can help you to mitigate this risk.

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