How does it work?

1. Unlocking the upfront investment

Energy spend is a ‘distressed purchase’ i.e. you wouldn’t buy energy if you had any other choice as it is not your core business. In many cases energy conservation (reduction) measures (ECMs) lose out in competition for capital with the ‘core’ business activities. An EPP will fund the ECMs, unlocking the investment and the energy savings without the need to use precious capital.

Any commissions paid to UT from the supplier (up to £0.01/kWh) will be transferred into the EPP immediately creating a cash fund enabling the ECMs to be installed.

2. Sourcing the best energy supply to suit your requirements

Utility Team will source you the best price possible for your energy and in some cases you will immediately see a reduction in the unit price.

3. Minimising the risk

Utility Team will manage all aspects of the EPP from the initial energy audits, securing you the lowest energy price possible. We will manage the utility companies and work with carefully chosen suppliers of innovative energy reduction technologies including; LEDs, building controls, CHP, heating and cooling.
