A Step By Step Development of an Energy Supply Management Strategy
The current energy market is increasingly volatile for commercial energy consumers across the board. When faced with the complexity of the numerous energy markets it’s no surprise that so many industries are on the lookout for energy-saving solutions.
Why Use Energy Supply Management?
One of the services we provide at Priority Power is energy supply management. We help our clients develop a strategy that helps them determine the best product structure and when to take advantage of energy-saving opportunities.
However, this process doesn’t happen overnight; serious strategy development is necessary for energy supply management to be successful, especially in a volatile market. That’s why it’s so important to take the time to properly plan out a long-term savings strategy that helps your business succeed no matter how the market fluctuates.
Step 1: Assess Your Risk Tolerance
Risk management is critical to your supply management plan. As we dig into your company’s risk tolerance in the market, we examine:
- Current market conditions and trends
- How closely your budget aligns with market trends.
- Past and future load changes both expected and unexpected
Once your risk tolerance has been thoroughly reviewed, we can then begin to piece together how your current level of risk factors in with the operational and sustainability goals that your business would like to achieve.
Step 2: Understand Your Operational Goals
Your operational goals will help you understand your business’ true flexibility within the energy markets. Is your current energy plan effectively balanced to maintain system stability and reliability, all while sticking to a proposed budget?
Through the help of an energy audit, business owners can truly see how much energy is needed for successful operation and how much it’s costing your business today to meet goals while riding out changes in the market.
If your energy supply isn’t set up to smoothly navigate changes in the market, you won’t be able to meet your operational goals. Avoid one-size-fits-all approaches to energy procurement. Your business is unique and demands a unique energy supply management strategy.
Step 3: Get Your Current Contracts Straight
Finally, we can help you determine how your current terms with energy providers have an impact on your bottom line. Our team will work with you to discuss your supplier preferences, existing relationships with providers, and help you negotiate around current contract lengths.
