Commodity Advisory & Procurement
Start a partnership that makes energy more affordable and manages your risk.
Looking strategically at your energy portfolio — fossil fuels and renewable energy — Edison Energy analyzes your needs and goals. Together, we determine your risk tolerance and develop and implement a strategy to manage the major cost components — commodity prices and wholesale power pricing — across multiple sites, or at each facility location. Based on your unique needs, we pinpoint the most reliable energy suppliers both at the aggregate and facility level. We study each offer in depth, accounting for every component of the delivered price to ensure optimal results.
Strategic: Our commodity advisory and procurement team manages the physical and financial cost, volume and reliability risk of consuming natural gas, power or renewable energy at your facility.
Advisory: We act as your trusted advisor, guiding you through the complexity of the commodity or energy acquisition process.
Analysis: Analyzing the whole landscape ensures that you get the best deal. For fossil fuel procurement, we competitively bid out each facility or group of facilities utilizing a database of over 200 vetted natural gas and electric providers. For renewable energy procurement, we identify and rank the best value opportunities from among the more than 4,000 renewable energy projects available in the country.
Support: We become an extension of your energy team, supporting you through detailed financial and physical evaluation and modeling, accounting treatment, commercial negotiation and the approval process.
Big picture perspective: We take a strategic view of energy procurement, with recommendations designed to improve your pricing and supply security and help achieve your organization’s overall procurement and sustainability goals. With a robust understanding of the market, we provide forward-looking forecasts to develop a customized Master Energy Plan and/or Realization Roadmap™ recommending when and where to focus across your facilities.
Savings: Our work is all about saving money on energy today and into the future.
Supply security: We help protect you against volatility in energy pricing as well as minimize risk of physical interruption.
Risk management: We manage client portfolios against unwanted exposure and energy price risk in five steps: Risk Assessment, Strategy Development, Execution, Reporting, and Evaluation/Modification.
Unbiased: Our network of suppliers gives you choice for the most cost-effective match.
Vigilant: We constantly monitor changes and trends in the energy market to ensure you’re taking advantage of every opportunity and minimizing potential risks.
