We are a leading provider of energy for UK businesses, dedicated to helping businesses buy and use it more efficiently. In addition to supporting customers with energy purchasing and risk management via our award-winning Optimisation Desk, we offer a full range of energy management solutions to help optimise the way your business consumes energy.
In all the history of UK energy supply, there has probably never been a more pressing time to understand how the energy we use is generated, traded and supplied – as well as all the different components that influence the price we pay for this vital commodity.
That’s why we’re creating a series of ‘Energy Made Simple’ reports – to provide a straight-forward explanation of all the key aspects of energy that will help you become more informed about the power and gas your business consumes.
We hope you find them useful.
