Procurement

Our energy trading team work with you to understand your business objectives and implement a bespoke strategy to meet them.

Nationwide Utilities have been purchasing energy on behalf of our clients for over 19 years, so we have a wealth of knowledge and experience to help you make the most informed decisions about which supplier to choose, what type of contract bests suits your business and when to secure it.
As the price of energy changing on a daily basis, it’s important to ensure you’re securing your rates when prices are low. We use our own tracking solutions to monitor the market in real-time and compare current and past energy prices, along with our market intelligence to forecast future trends. This ensures that we secure your upcoming contracts at the optimum time.
With so many different suppliers and contractual options available for you to choose from, it could sometimes feel overwhelming, and your time is valuable, so we simplify the process of obtaining the best energy plan for you.
Our long standing relationships with over 20 different utility suppliers across the UK helps us to negotiate preferential rates on your behalf. We start by auditing your current consumption and validating recent invoices and consumption data, to ensure your estimated usage matches your actual consumption and both energy and non-energy costs are correct and appropriate. We then source a range of quotes from our network of suppliers and make our recommendations based on price and service.
Once your contracts are secured, we provide ongoing monitoring and performance reporting to help optimise your consumption patterns, increase efficiency, lower emissions and cut costs.
There’s no need to wait until your current contract expires as we’re able to work in advance to plan and negotiate the best terms for your next contracts.
