Strategic energy purchasing

Our services

Enel X energy experts work with your team to translate business objectives into a cohesive go-to-market strategy. Together we evaluate how your goals around cost minimisation, budget certainty, sustainability, and risk mitigation fit into your existing energy supply management practices and planning horizons. We investigate supply and hedging options and evaluate suppliers to make strategic recommendations. When appropriate, your options may include alternative sourcing approaches, such as the use of flexible supply contracts, wholesale market participation, renewable energy, battery storage or co-generation.

If you elect a progressive purchasing approach, our advisors and analysts provide expert advice to quantify and manage the risk exposure of unpurchased load - helping you make critical market decisions. You receive regular market updates to ensure your energy sourcing and risk management strategies align with current market conditions. Learn more here

We review your site’s network charges to identify and implement opportunities to reduce cost. These include: confirming the correct application of loss factors; identifying applicable lowest cost network tariffs; ensuring appropriate demand settings; and reviewing power factor charges.

The price you pay for energy is not solely determined by your organisation’s annual usage. Different factors like time of use, agreed capacity, credit, geography, number of meters, and market exposure all interplay to determine your price. We manage the competitive sourcing process to find you the best energy contract. We analyse and validate supplier bids, provide recommendations, and aid in contract negotiations.

Enel X analysts audit all transportation, utility, and/or supplier invoices for accuracy in volume and price. We work with the utility or supplier to remedy any inaccuracies that may be uncovered. For organisations requiring utility bill management (UBM), our software-based UBM tools streamline bill collection, validation and the payment process, and provide visibility into when and how you use energy.

We provide detailed monthly energy budgets, ensuring all billing factors and market intelligence is applied to heighten accuracy. A Budget Assumption Paper is provided to support the preparation of thebudget and details all assumptions made. Our methodology considers consumption, commodity, line loss factors, and network and capacity costs.
