Energy Procurement Services

How can good energy procurement strategies affect our costs in deregulated markets?
In volatile energy markets, it can be a challenge to develop accurate annual energy budgets and strategic procurement plans. At Cost Control Associates we use our deep knowledge of regulatory complexities in each state and utility to provide valuable insight and advice on cost containment. We navigate the fundamental and technical market trends to develop a program that matches your risk profile and drive down per-unit electricity and natural gas costs.
What type of organizations benefit the most from your energy procurement services?
Any business can benefit. Cost Control Associates has successfully helped firms—both large and small—mitigate risks and dramatically reduce energy costs in deregulated markets. Our energy procurement experts work with you to determine your specific needs and craft the right solution.
What do your procurement services include?
Our Basic Energy Procurement Program follows a step-by-step approach that has proven successful for regional and multi-site national firms. We evaluate deregulated opportunities by state and utility, then compare rates against competitive supply offerings and the timing of auction markets. We assess savings opportunities and perform due diligence on suppliers, pricing, terms and contract considerations. We also assist in the selection of suppliers, negotiate and execute energy agreements, perform contract management and identify market opportunities on an ongoing basis.
What if our organization requires more comprehensive services?

Our Comprehensive Energy Procurement Program includes all the components of our Basic Energy Procurement program and more:

Strategic Procurement Plan Development. CCA develops customized energy procurement plans by analyzing unique market opportunities, assessing risk profiles, assisting with the determination of procurement objectives and quantifying market risks and opportunities.

Establish Budgets, Pricing Models and Plan Tracking. We develop budgets, put mechanisms in place to evaluate pricing on an equal basis and provide a means to compare actual performance against plan.

Plan Execution. Once we establish a customized procurement plan, we have the experience, skills and resources to make it happen.

Which of your energy procurement services is right for us?
The Basic Energy Procurement Program is ideal for clients who want to lower costs but do not require plan development, budgeting and cost tracking. For clients requiring a more robust, actively managed program, the Comprehensive Energy Procurement Program is a great option. In either case, we tailor an energy procurement program that meets your specific needs.
Does Cost Control Associates supply energy or utility services?
No, Cost Control Associates is not an energy supplier or marketer. We have assisted clients in reducing their energy costs since 1991. As an independent advisor, you can trust that our unbiased services are based on your needs alone.
What is the cost of your energy procurement services?
We have various pricing options including Monthly Retainer, Project Fee and Hourly Fee. After a no-cost initial consultation with one of our experts, we will tailor a program to meet your unique objectives. Our fees are based on your specific needs and the scope of work involved.
