Energy Procurement
Energy constitutes a high input cost to most organisations.  Often there are more than one source of energy available that can be used to meet the same business need.  For example, on peak electricity, off peak electricity, liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquefied propane gas (LPG) and diesel are commonly used energy sources.  

The sale of energy is measured in different units (Litre, cubic meter, MJ or kWh) making it difficult to compare the unit costs.  Some energy sources, such as electricity, have different tariffs based upon the time  or rate of use of energy.  On-site solar PV and battery storage provide a supplementary source of energy but what are the unit costs?
Anser professionals are highly experienced with energy tariffs and technology and will comprehensively analyse your energy usage and identify ways to minimise costs and greenhouse gas emissions.  Our professionals will:
  • Analyse energy use by site (daily, weekly and annual variations)
  • Calculate and compare unit cost for all available energy types
  • Identify the optimal electricity tariff by modelling site costs under different electricity tariffs
  • Identify sites which are able to procure energy from alternative electricity retailers ("contestable" sites)
  • For contestable sites, identify the lowest electricity and gas tariffs available through other retailers
  • Verify charges invoiced by your utility match tariff rates
Often substantial recurring savings can be found which are many times the cost of the consultation.

To compare the cost effectiveness of two items of equipment used to produce the same output, compare the Point of Use (PoU) energy cost of each.  PoU cost depends upon the fuel cost, its energy intensity and the conversion efficiency of the equipment.  Simple!
