When we meet with large international businesses one of the first questions we ask is – how do you currently manage your energy requirements across your various sites? More often than not, the response is that they use multiple local energy consultants to support their internal staff. Although this approach works, it has many shortcomings. To begin, you are required to identify, vet and implement multiple vendors which is both time and resource intensive. Once the vendors have been selected, you need to coordinate each vendor’s activities. Since competing vendors normally do not willingly cooperate and share data with one another, you will need to consolidate each vendor’s local energy data into a comprehensive international database. Also, as different consultants generally have different views of the markets, it will be difficult to implement a consistent energy procurement strategy. Finally, you run the risk of paying for overlapping services.
