Education Energy Procurement – the challenge:
With the new funding formula for schools and cuts to further education, schools and colleges have to be ever more creative in managing their budgets.
Using the local authority procurement group can sometimes bring more problems than it solves. It means you still have to deal with issues and suppliers even though you didn’t agree the contract in the first place. Although they may seem attractively priced initially, many of the contracts have high management fees and daily charges attached to them meaning they aren’t always as good value as on first appearance.
Our Managed Energy Procurement package offers you a flexible, transparent and great value solution!
Are your energy prices causing a headache?
We all know that energy costs can be a huge percentage of your overhead and with prices going up, they can’t be ignored. But navigating the energy market can be a real hassle, especially for time-strapped finance directors or business managers.
A Greener Solution can arrange energy supply contracts for schools and colleges of all sizes. We use our knowledge of the market to find the best tariff for your establishment’s usage profile, be that a small primary school, a multi academy trust or an FE college.
What is Managed Energy Procurement?
We work with you to establish your goals and objectives, whether they are reducing costs, reducing your carbon footprint or ensuring your buildings are compliant with energy efficiency standards and legislation.
You have a dedicated, fully qualified account manager to provide expert advice. They will do all the hard work of maintaining your energy contracts and ensuring you are on the best available tariff.
Your account manager does not work on commission, so remains wholly independent and impartial.
How does it work?
You pay a simple annual flat fee and in return we review your contract on a regular basis, in line with your needs (this could be annually, quarterly or even monthly).
We visit your site to assess your current usage and efficiency and make a development plan – identifying opportunities to save energy whenever possible. Regular reports allow you to track progress and report to the Senior Leadership Team and Governors.
We are able to offer contracts from every single supplier on the market and can guarantee the best rates on the day. We can also offer the best prices on renewable electricity and carbon zero gas.

We also save time and hassle, by resolving customer service issues quickly and efficiently on your behalf.
Our mission is simple: to free up your time and money to concentrate on what matters – your students.
Running a school or college is a complex and expensive business – we want to help you make it easier and more cost effective.
