Customised Energy Procurement for Every Need

Flexible energy procurement involves tracking the wholesale market, allowing you to purchase energy when the costs are low while holding off during price surges. As a result, you can spread price risk throughout the duration of your contract by matching your purchasing plan with movements in the market, rather than working against them.

By doing so, you can significantly reduce your energy expenses, as long as you implement the right strategy for risk management as well as the most suitable model for your purchasing (e.g. seasonal or advance-month deals).

To develop and maximise the right strategy for a flexible approach, OFGEM recommends that businesses partner with energy specialists to make the right purchases at the right time. That’s where we at Northern Gas and Power come in.

Fixed Contracts

This approach provides cost stability in a volatile market, covering all related expenses - from distribution fees to government taxes - within the unit rates.

Flexible Contracts

Flexible energy contracts allow you the opportunity to take advantage of market volatility, by purchasing energy throughout the life of the contract.
