LATEST MARKET UPDATE: Gas and Power prices are largely trading at parity with last week’s levels, despite some significant price swings at the front of the pricing curve. The bout of low pressure has seen reduced wind output, increasing demand for gas-fired power generation and stretching a European gas system which is struggling to attract global LNG. Winter prices have also been volatile with concerns over gas storage levels being partially offset by positive supply news surrounding the potential completion of the Nordstream 2 gas pipeline. Prices further out have been softer, as renewed coronavirus fears in the wake of the delta variant have weigh on global oil markets.
Cloudfm was launched in 2011 by a team of Facility Management (FM) experts. They work in partnership with their clients to give unparalleled control over every maintenance detail on their estate.
Having experienced the limitations of conventional energy solutions, the founders believed that a new approach was required and so approached Utility Team for our expert knowledge and experience to guide and manage their portfolio.
Utility Team partnered with Cloudfm to provide interest-free funding for energy reduction projects for their client base (this included BPP University, Pizza Express, KFC and others).
We additionally procured gas and electricity, centralising the management of energy data and compliance – massively reducing costs to the group as well as ensuring efficiency of service, making the whole process easier for them. We provide a dedicated support centre to solve billing queries with real-time monitoring.
Working with Utility Team has helped to bring a highly specialised and unique element to our businesses skill set within facilities management. In addition to this they have also been able to unify our own contracts under a group deal that demonstrated a saving in 2019.
