Bespoke Utilities are committed to helping our clients find the best green energy partner for them, in terms of both the price on the market and also the ability to report.
Signing up to a new green energy contract is simple and cost effective. Improving your businesses sustainability and reducing emissions has a positive effect on the environment.
Bespoke Utilities have a special Green Energy department who have a range of procurement options available to organisations looking to secure a more sustainable supply contract. Bespoke Utiliies can also provide advice and assistance with regards to on site generation.
The energy you pay for is pumped into the national grid and replaces traditional (brown) energy. As more people opt to buy green energy, the supply of sustainable energy available increases and reduces the demand for brown energy. The Government has committed to produce 15% of its energy from renewable sources which include:
This is Britain’s number 1 source of renewable energy. The technologies involved are well developed with multiple wind parks up and down the country.
Despite what most people think about the weather, we do have enough sun. Enough to make electricity on a large scale through solar cells. A solar cell converts light into an electric current and is one of the main components of a solar panel.
Energy which is generated from flowing water. This is used where water causes turbines to rotate such as the coast line or on major rivers.
Bespoke Utilities are one of only a few companies in the country with access to renewable gas rates. Renewable gas can be generated by the following: (and then have the 3 bullet points that say anaerobic digestion, CHP and Biomass).
- Anaerobic digestion – a methane and co2 rich biogas which can be burnt to produce energy.
- Combined Heat & Power (CHP) – the simultaneous generation of heat and power in a single process. In a standard plant, a lot of heat is wasted and a CHP harnesses the heat for a useful purpose. These plants can be up to 95% efficient so this process is both green and CCL exempt.
- Biomass – this is produced from organic material. We get it from plants or waste products from industry/agriculture.
Green Energy Case Study
Bespoke Utilities were appointed after a rigorous tendering process by Hadland Care group who wanted to find a specialist energy consultancy that offered them 100% renewable energy at a competitive price as well as having a fully managed solution for their energy requirements. Bespoke Utilities have got a successful track record in not only sourcing renewable gas and power, but also assisting clients in the reduction of consumption through various methods.
Bespoke Utilities tendered to the whole of the energy market and obtained prices from multiple suppliers in April 2017. They analysed all types of products and managed to source a price from a specialist supplier that was a 100% renewable solution at the same price of a normal ‘brown’ product. Within the product that was sourced, Bespoke Utilities also arranged installation of AMR meters across the whole portfolio. This means that every meter in the portfolio would be read automatically and billed on actual reads, this increases the accuracy of billing and makes consumption analysis work much easier to carry out.
The product that was secured was a 24-month contract. The supplier that was chosen offers a product where 100% of the electricity for all 27 of Hadland Care Groups supplies is sourced from generation that has been accredited as renewable power by OFGEM. The electricity is from a combination of sources including biomass, solar and wind.
In addition to sourcing this renewable power, Bespoke Utilities offer an ongoing service to Hadland Care Group which includes:
- Bill validation – every invoice that is received is reviewed and checked for errors.
- Consumption analysis – Bespoke Utilities send monthly consumption reports to Hadland Care Group to analyse and try and assist in reducing consumptions across all sites.
- Query Management – Bespoke Utilities handle any billing/metering issues direct with the energy companies.
Jeff Everett, Commercial Director of Hadland Care Group had the following to say:
“Following a thorough tendering process to appoint a new consultant, we chose Bespoke Utilities because they were transparent with their pricing and they showed an appetite and desire to deliver to us all of our requirements. They developed a procurement strategy that suited us and went to the whole energy market and gave us renewable quotes at very competitive prices. Their quotes included the installation of AMR meters in all of our properties as well as assisting us with invoice validation and budgeting. They have also helped us a great deal with our ESOS requirements.
We have a large portfolio of gas and power contracts and could be happier with the service they provide. We would recommend Bespoke Utilities to any business looking to work with a transparent and trustworthy consultancy who focus on delivering their clients exactly what they want”
