Renewable Energy Purchasing

Reduce carbon emissions and reverse the effects of climate change with our renewable energy solutions. 

“In the 21st century, every piece of coal we don’t burn is a small victory for life on Earth.” - Greenpeace, 2020

Climate change poses the greatest existential threat to our planet. Without greater global action to reduce our tCO2e (carbon dioxide or equivalent greenhouse gas emissions), the damage to our atmosphere may soon become irreversible.

As the UK’s first energy consulting firm to become ISO 50001 accredited, we understand the threat global warming and resolutely endeavour to provide clients with sustainable business energy management strategies to meet global decarbonisation targets. Become a credible prosumer with our help by generating your own onsite renewable energy, employing load shifting strategies during times of peak demand, and participating in Ofgem’s financially rewarding environmental programmes. Benefit from real-time access to your precise consumption data and capitalise on energy market volatility with bespoke renewable energy procurement strategies.

Purchasing renewable energy used to carry a hefty premium. However, the latest advancements in carbon neutral technologies have significantly reduced the financial impact associated with offsetting emissions. Together, we can reduce reliance on fossil fuels for a safer, more sustainable future.

Net Zero by 2050: A Brief History

In 1992, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change introduced a pioneering international treaty to mitigate the devastating effects of global warming. The first wave of mandates – known as the Kyoto Protocol – came into force in 1997, but the controversial ratification process delayed implementation until 2005. It wasn’t until 2015 that the UN reintroduced an adapted framework known as the Paris Agreement, a landmark multilateral and internationally binding treaty. The system operates according to a 5-year cycle of increasingly ambitious climate change actions to limit global warming to below 2°C – preferably 1.5°C – compared to pre-industrial levels.

The Paris Agreement set the stage for the ratification of innumerable global climate change policies – including the UK’s commitment become Net Zero by 2050. To this day, the UK’s climate change regulations remain the world’s most progressive measures against global warming. To become “net zero”, or carbon neutral, we must continue to heavily invest in renewable resources and carbon capture, storage, and utilisation technologies (CCUS) to effectively offset carbon emissions for a safer, more sustainable future.

How will switching to renewable resources benefit my business?

We’re passionate about safeguarding our future and are eager to support businesses looking to do the same.

Never underestimate the impact of climate change levies (CCL) and non-commodity taxes, as non-compliance can result in hefty penalties. Your dedicated account manager will collate and submit your consumption data, so you never miss an Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) or Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) deadline again. To ensure compliance and demonstrate corporate social responsibility, we can organise voluntary ISO 50001 and ISO 14001 accreditation audits to receive ESOS discounts or full exemption for those in energy-intensive industries (EII).

A well-negotiated Climate Change Agreement (CCA) or Power Purchasing Agreement (PPA) goes a long way. With the right CCAs, large organisations can save up to 90% on Climate Change Levy (CCL) charges. We can also secure Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) on your behalf. These bilateral electricity supply contracts define the volume of electricity to be supplied and can significantly reduce overheads or avoidable penalties.

Future-proof your finances

Onsite renewable energy generation installations, such as solar panels and wind turbines or carbon capture and storage (CCS) sites, allow you to reduce energy bills and earn income through the Feed-In Tariff (FIT) scheme, Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI), and more. Switching to a renewable energy contract from our network of REGO-certified suppliers or ensuring your properties operate on a half-hourly (HH) metering basis will make a substantial difference to your utility bills, too.

Use existing assets to earn additional income with grid balancing services

Prevent power outages and make a profit by loading shifting during times of peak grid demand. Speak to an advisor to learn more about grid balancing and Demand Side Response (DSR) services, such as Short-Term Operator Response (STOR), Static and Dynamic Firm Frequency Response (SFFR or DFFR), Triad avoidance, and more.

Benefits of our 100% green contracts and renewable energy management services:

  • Cost-effective tariffs and renewable energy contract procurement with the UK’s top suppliers.
  • Stabilise energy market volatility and prevent service disruptions with our DSR, STOR, SFFR, DFFR, and grid balancing services guidance.
  • Prove ESOS and SECR compliance with ISO 50001, ISO 14001, or Carbon Trust accreditation.
  • Improve energy efficiency to meet emissions targets and reduce the impact of levies (CCL) and taxes with CCAs and PPAs.
  • Eliminate reliance on fossil fuels to help reach Net Zero obligations.
  • Use our emission audits, carbon footprint assessments, and consumption reporting to improve operational efficiency.
  • Prevent overcharging and reduce non-commodity taxes with fixed or flexible energy contracts with pass-through options.
  • AMR and half-hourly meter management to for more accurate consumption data.
  • Enhance employee engagement and improve stakeholder trust by improving green credentials with EPCs and DECs.
