Energy Contracts are where most companies think they’ve won the battle, but they end up losing the war…
That’s because inevitably the battle is narrowly waged over $$ per KwH (Kilowatt-Hour) as a disproportionate factor in decision making. In large scale energy bidding, price per Kw/H is not the only major factor and may not even be the most important element of your energy strategy considerations. Even seasoned executives and negotiators fall victim to this despite their skills and experience and the reason is simple: Energy Suppliers don’t really want you to fully understand how they are making their money.
What Suppliers Don’t Want You To Know
Energy Supplier contracts are deliberately confusing and opaque. They hide the real cost contingencies behind terms like “bandwidth considerations” , “RMR” and “NITS”. If you are an entity with a multi-location profile, your inclination to group your usage across facilities for leverage will almost certainly fail to optimize your profile to suppliers. Grouping considerations are complex and usage profiles must be studied carefully to insure that they will make sense to the supplier marketplace.
