Large Independent School

BACKGROUND

Established over a century ago, this establishment is now one of the most respected independent girls’ boarding and day schools in the country. In 2009 requested help to minimise electricity and gas costs over several sites. The energy market was becoming more complex, with many new cost components being introduced, hence evaluating supplier offers on a like for like basis had become increasingly difficult for the client.

WHAT WE DID

We contacted the existing energy suppliers for each individual electricity and gas meter and collated information to establish a detailed portfolio of every building and meter point to include both consumption and charging rates. This enabled the school to accurately understand the overall cost and usage by each fuel.

The portfolio also identified different contract end dates. Therefore our first tender corrected this situation by including staggered start dates with a common end date. With a varied portfolio of a large number of buildings, we continue to provide ongoing management of all energy queries identified.
