The North East Energy Consortium
The North East Energy Consortium is one of the purchasing groups ran by The Green Energy Advice Bureau. Our first consortium was for the education sector, since then we have created manufacturing, engineering, charity and retail consortiums. Our latest consortium is for Aycliffe Business Park, this covers a mix of small SME businesses all the way up to large corporate intensive consumers.
By creating a basket of energy we provide a collective bulk purchasing energy procurement service to businesses throughout the UK. Whether you are a nationally recognised manufacturer and retailer or a single engineering company to combine your portfolios of energy consumption. By doing these we achieve far lower prices than would be available to one individual member – energy is the same as anything else, the more of it you buy the cheaper it gets.
It isn’t just energy procurement we specialise in, many large consuming meters have many charges which come alongside them. These charges require to be monitored as these can be variable and in some cases your specific industry is exempt from paying them. Over the years we have been able to save tens of thousands of pounds and achieve rebates back to the sum of many thousands more at no charge our clients. We can also look into introducing a climate change agreement if we believe this will meet your needs.
