As energy markets become increasingly complex and new technologies disrupt traditional market structures, more and more companies have turned to strategic energy procurement to drive costs out of their operations, manage risk, and achieve strong financial discipline. This shift is especially important for large, multi-site companies who find themselves challenged to source energy and manage price risk to support their portfolio of facilities.
Layer in sustainability initiatives and diverse market rules, conditions, and participants, energy procurement can be a challenge for even the biggest, most advanced organizations.
Energy procurement is most often associated with energy purchasing decisions in deregulated energy markets. As technology and market dynamics have evolved, however, we believe buyers should incorporate all sourcing options into their energy procurement strategies – from rate optimization to renewable energy to bilateral agreements with regulated energy providers.
Energy decisions impact virtually every part of an organization – from finance and facilities to operations and legal departments – so energy strategies must be transparent and build up from an organization’s core strengths. Energy procurement is an important component of an organization’s comprehensive energy strategy and, if done well, will help an organization save money, manage risk, and forecast expenditures more accurately.
A strong energy procurement strategy requires a holistic, integrated approach to energy supply decisions. It should consider both near and long-term priorities, market conditions, and established business processes. It also requires a combination of market intelligence, easy access to centrally organized information, and informative decision-making support tools. Ultimately, a comprehensive energy procurement strategy adapts to your business’s needs while driving long-term value.
