Energy and Energy Management

We have detailed, up-to-the-minute knowledge of the business gas and electric marketplace, plus a deep insight into suppliers’ pricing strategies. So if your energy provider is gradually increasing rates to grow their own margins, or another supplier is reducing rates to boost their market share, we’ll know about it. We use this information to help our clients minimise their energy bills, and to devise energy procurement strategies that drive down costs in the short, medium and long term.

When you commission Utilitas to manage your energy procurement, we will analyse your usage and billing history to build up a clear profile of your energy requirements. We’ll then evaluate this profile against the most competitive tariffs in the marketplace to identify the supplier and contract that will deliver the greatest saving. Once you have given your confirmation to proceed, we will manage the entire transfer process for you.

Yet our job doesn’t end there. Our invoice validation service checks the fixed fees and usage rates applied on your bills, and if we spot an error or identify a metering issue, we’ll liaise with your supplier and claim a rebate.

We continually track prices from the major providers and specialist business-only suppliers. So if you’re coming to the end of your existing deal, we’ll take advantage of any opportunity to lock in favourable rates for your next contract.

“Surprisingly the two things I value the most are: the peace of mind in knowing the suppliers selected are good, honest suppliers, and that the prices and invoices are constantly under review by Utilitas. In the unlikely event that we do have any issues, Utilitas is on hand to sort it out. And of course the savings they introduce in the first place are very welcome!”

Nick Allen, Finance DirectorBerry Gardens

“Utilitas have always been on the end of the phone if I have needed any answers. They are very good at running through their quarterly reports with me, and have consistently found us the cheapest supplier”

Mike Macey, Finance OfficerHomewood School & Sixth Form Centre

“What I am most impressed about with Utilitas is that they are not solely focused on just getting the best rates, they also scrutinise all invoices, old and new to ensure no savings are left uncovered.”

Mark Dickens, BursarCumnor House School

“Initially, I was sceptical, but had assurances from Eric and Steve that if they could not find any savings the fee for NAS would be zero. As I thought we'd done a very good job in the past, we had nothing to lose. We were extremely pleased at the level of detail they went into and the savings they produced. We have now asked them to look into other areas of spend to see what they can find there.”

Wendy Turner THE NATIONAL AUTISTIC SOCIETY

“We've received fantastic results by using Utilitas. I'd like to thank them for their input and results, and for assisting when we've had energy-related issues, including supply and meter installations, over the last couple of years.”

Geoff ArthurDeputy Bursar

“The savings achieved by Utilitas Solutions speak for themselves and what I like most about the relationship we have with Eric and the rest of the team is that whilst they are tasked with finding the best savings possible they always ensure that our service requirements are met. They always present us with a range of options for us to choose from with the added benefit of their experience and advice as required.”

Derek Todd, BursarSt Albans School

“I am very pleased with the savings Utilitas have produced for us. Like most companies we had thought we had our procurement strategy working well, the level of savings produced just goes to show we are best to focus on what we do best and let the experts find the savings”
