Energy partnerships are driving change
12th July 2018
In today’s rapidly changing energy marketplace, how can businesses find the reliable energy partnerships they need?
Not long ago, the most that businesses could reasonably ask of their energy companies were a reliable service and low unit costs. Organisations regarded these utility providers as suppliers, pure and simple.
But with the energy market being disrupted more rapidly – and more radically – than ever before, businesses are now looking to their energy companies for a genuine partnership.
This is equally true of large companies with their own energy procurement departments as it is of small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) with only limited internal support dedicated to energy.
A partnership with an external energy expert can range from the strategic to the tactical. While some companies are looking to rethink their entire relationship with energy, others are looking to reduce costs, manage risks, increase income – or sometimes all three.
For instance, many businesses want to use energy more flexibly so they can benefit from schemes such as Demand Side Response. Others wish to trade self-generated power through Power Purchase Agreements or to reduce emissions through renewable energy.
These nuanced relationships need a greater degree of mutual understanding than the traditional supplier/customer model requires. And this is why it’s so important that businesses find the right partner to help them navigate the ever-changing world of energy.
