Strength in numbers: energy baskets

Energy baskets reduce costs, stress and decrease admin for you

After three successive years of rising energy markets, ESS energy baskets are a simple way for our clients to acquire greater buying power and achieve a level of savings that is not available on an individual basis.

The energy baskets are a way of connecting the energy procurement of multiple sites across our client portfolio to form a stronger legion of energy buyers. By grouping together with other organisations, not only can each individual client reduce the rates they pay, but strength in numbers reduces risk premium for all, thus protecting them against the volatile market.

ESS energy baskets: the benefits

  • Every organisation, big or small, will gain greater buying power by being included in an energy basket
  • Highly competitive prices not available on an individual basis
  • The larger volume allows suppliers to reduce the risk premium added to fixed energy contracts. The level of risk is shared amongst the members
  • Increased protection against market volatility and rising non-commodity costs
  • Every member also benefits from using greener energy and receives a greater level of account management service
