When considering energy management
There are many factors that need to be examined and compared before any energy contracts are signed. These factors include energy tariffs, pricing of energy, reliability, security and environmental impacts. An analysis of all these aspects is known as the business energy assessment. An effective strategy to reduce carbon emissions while increasing efficiency and providing a reliable energy supply can be implemented by a company looking to renew its energy contracts. In addition, a Business Energy Renewal program will increase productivity and ultimately profitability.
A Business Energy Renewal agreement is a binding contract between a supplier and a company which has agreed to supply heating, ventilation and hot water over a given period of time, usually for 12, eighteen or 24 month terms. The suppliers then set their own prices for the amount of energy provided and the rate at which they wish to renew. The main aim of the suppliers is to recover a portion of the cost of supply, although this does depend on the level of competition. Providers normally have a dedicated account manager who is responsible for ensuring the renewal of the Contracts.

An energy supplier may choose to enter into a Business Energy Renewal agreement with a customer who has a direct debit with them. The direct debit account is normally managed by the company who, in turn, takes responsibility for paying the supplier. The account manager will ensure the correct amounts of bills are paid on an ongoing basis. In some cases, the supplier may decide to increase the prices on certain services in order to recover their investment.
Renewing a business gas and electricity supply involves looking at the tariffs for those suppliers as well as the different deals available from the different suppliers. When comparing prices, it is advisable to check the current tariffs and price rises, which are advertised regularly. Many suppliers have a fixed minimum price, which they charge for new contracts, and there are others that offer a flexible tariff with prices that are subject to inflation. It is also necessary to compare between all of the suppliers, because some will offer you a better deal than others. It is common practice for suppliers to offer special deals during certain times of the year, so if you are looking to take advantage of one of these, it is always worthwhile finding out if you can get a better deal when the incentive period is running.
Business energy providers must obtain a full copy
Without obtaining the full information, they risk being fined. It is essential for companies who wish to renew their gas and electricity supplies to ensure that they understand all of the conditions involved in doing this.
The first step is to find a professional company that can carry out a business energy comparison and provide a quote. There are various different suppliers available, so it is vital that the supplier you choose has a good reputation for doing so. A good supplier will often work in partnership with other companies that need to compare supplies so that all of the right information can be collated at the end of the day. It is also possible for a company to become “fully integrated” into another larger firm, so it is important to check that the service provider you are choosing has this option if it is available. It may be worth setting up a dedicated account manager for your new suppliers just in case you change your mind and want to continue using the old suppliers.
