Energy Consultancy: The benefits of a holistic approach

In the realm of energy management, it is important to understand the difference between an energy broker and an energy consultant. While both play distinct roles, opting for an energy consultant offers a deeper dive into strategising and forecasting, tailored to your business’s needs.

What’s the difference between an energy broker and an energy consultant?

While some consultants are also brokers, it’s important to get the right kind of help. If you know exactly what you need, a broker can be enough, but an energy consultant will spend more time ensuring the deal is right for you.

What are the benefits and opportunities of working with an energy consultant?

Start with the strategy: By working with an energy consultant, clients can access the best energy offers by starting with the needs of the business and establishing a tailored strategy to fulfil their energy requirements.

Improved forecasting: Energy consultants create procurement strategies by using historical data for accurate cost forecasts.

Savings on energy bills: Energy professionals can help you analyse market trends to identify cost-saving opportunities tailored to your business’s risk tolerance and financial objectives.
