With so many different gas and electricity suppliers touting for business, choosing the right one for your business can sometimes feel a little overwhelming.
All offer different tariffs, different contract terms and conditions, and different levels of customer service so making a decision can often be time consuming.
But for public sector bodies unsure about the right path to take, or those that don’t have the time or the resources to dedicate to energy procurement, there is a solution: Energy Management’s Choice Energy Framework (CEF).
The CEF allows for a mini-competition involving up to six energy suppliers, who are based on price, quality and service.
As anyone involved in the OJEU tender process will appreciate, there is a mountain of paperwork to negotiate before securing an energy supplier.
But the CEF cuts through some of the red tape, whilst still being fully compliant with public contract regulations, with just a simple access agreement to complete.
If your energy procurement is renewable energy focussed, this will be open to you if you sign up to the CEF.
