How is Northern Gas and Power different from Energy Brokers?
Northern Gas and Power are Energy Specialists and Business Consultants. Consultants as opposed to brokers, will perform a more detailed analysis of your business practices and energy usage patterns in order to provide a tailored energy solution and establish a long-term relationship, which typically results in greater savings than those offered by ‘Energy Brokers’.
How do we receive our fees?
The fees for our service will already be included within our supplier proposals that we present. We will then receive this directly from the successful energy supplier on any contract that we have placed with them. Our promise to you is that you will not pay any additional fees on top of what we present, which means our service will not have any surprises.
Why do organizations need an energy consultant?
People coming to energy for the first time are taken back by the extreme market conditions that are commonplace in this complex market. Trying to make sense of all the various elements is a time consuming process that can cause a great level of frustration. Tackling the energy market without professional help can prove to be a costly decision for any organization. Employing an energy specialist is recommended for any organization unfamiliar with the inner workings of the energy market. Knowledge and timing is essential to successfully navigating this complex market. Northern Gas and Power has all the specialists and professionals in one place at your beck and call and can deliver on all of your energy needs.
How can I reduce my company’s energy costs?
Increasing prices, legislative and reputational drivers, along with difficult economic conditions, are all contributing to energy costs becoming a boardroom issue. To help reduce these costs we focus on the following:
1. Checking your energy bills
At a basic level we will inspect all aspects of your current contract and energy bills. We will determine if your contract has been working to its full potential, allowing you to achieve its maximum savings. We will check your energy meter to ensure that it is being read correctly and you haven’t been overbilled.
2. Energy procurement
We recommend a structured tender process involving all suppliers interested in the type and scale of supply for your business. Ideally you should work towards a tailored contract, designed to match your business’ energy consumption patterns. Ensuring your premises are on the correct contracts can deliver cost savings. As established professionals within the industry we have extensive experience helping businesses meticulously analyse their energy needs and helping match them with the right solution to fit within their organization. Our vision is to lead the market by raising the bar in quality standards, providing a level of service that is unmatched within the industry.
Why has the cost of energy been increasing?
In real-terms the cost of energy has risen across the nation about 15% over the last 10 years. The price you pay for your energy is dependent on several things. About half of your bill is the wholesale cost of gas and electricity, but there is also the cost of distribution, transmission charges, tax, environmental costs and meter provision – as well as your energy company’s supply costs and profit. Higher gas prices have been the main driver of increasing energy bills over the last eight years.
What else is affecting prices?
1. Natural gas prices have fallen in recent years thanks to the ‘fracking’ boom, bolstering the prominence of natural gas in the American electricity generation mix. While gas-generated electricity is cheap now, many expect the price to rise once export terminals for liquefied natural gas (LNG) are completed and America’s natural gas supply is exposed to international markets – Europe and Japan, for example, currently pay significantly more for natural gas than the US.
2. Extreme temperatures can drive up the demand for electricity, as more energy is needed for heating and cooling, among other operations. As global climate change progresses and extreme weather becomes more widespread, this higher demand will likely drive electricity prices higher.
3. The Energy Information Agency also predicts that electricity price is going to increase, both in the short-term as well as the long-term (out to 2040).
