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.
“I have been delighted with the work Utilitas have done over the last decade, from getting involved in micro-generation and energy saving feasibility studies to administering sub-metered invoicing on my behalf. Given all they have done, I would happily recommend their services to any producer or grower.”HE Hall & Son
“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!”Berry 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”Homewood 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.”Cumnor 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.”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.”Deputy Bursar
“St Albans School has been working with Utilitas since 2007, in that time they have audited and helped manage costs across a number of areas of expenditure, including energy, reprographics, communications and waste. They have consistently delivered cost savings and best service which is why we continue to work with them to ensure the school receives best value in the marketplace”St 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”Brachers LLP
