Our energy procurement model is based on a special principle: We pool the electricity and gas demands of industrial businesses into one large volume. We then put out a call to tender on the international energy market at the most affordable point in time. Through the market power achieved by pooling, we’re able to negotiate individual electricity and gas contracts which will guarantee significant savings over several years.
We understand your challenges as well as our business. We consider all factors when negotiating your contracts, from the manufacturing location to the legal relief rules for your industry. We analyse your company’s usage beforehand. How high is the base load? What has previously been done to reduce peak loads and minimise grid charges and costs for additional load blocks? Another aspect involves looking at how your company plans to develop. Are manufacturing changes in the pipeline? Or is the num-ber of sites due to increase?
In order to negotiate the optimum terms, we also use our own energy price forecast. This focusses on the supply and demand developments regarding electricity and gas. Based on an accurate observation of international markets and energy exchanges as well as trend analysis, we create a medium and long-term price development forecast. This is also based on discussions with decision-makers in the field of politics and economics as well as energy experts who can increase the validity of our forecast. Regular adjustments are continuously made to ensure we’re up to date.
