Outsourcing Energy Management – what are the benefits?

NFU Energy’s Account Managed service provides access to a team of industry experts that can take care of all your energy requirements within one package. Perhaps you have single site with a complex energy infrastructure, or you have multiple sites with a group of import contracts to manage? Perhaps you’ve invested heavily in technology and need to make sure you are getting the best returns on your investment? Whatever your set-up, the aim of our service is for your Account Manager to become an extension of your team - a trusted partner in energy.

We understand farmers and growers. For over 50 years the majority of our customers have been in agriculture and horticulture. Our account managers are not salespeople. Their purpose is to get to know you and your business, understand what’s important, and provide you with the most appropriate support, advice and guidance.

As part of the package, you will be in regular contact with a specialist who knows the ins and outs of the UK energy market. Your Account Manager will be on-hand to give you the most current and up to date advice on how to manage your import and export contracts to the best of your interest.

Amongst our services, we can:

  • Provide competitive energy prices: We compare energy prices and products from a wide range of suppliers, monitor the markets and can help you to access wholesale prices with flexible energy trading.
  • Eliminate administrative burden: Mandated compliance and energy incentives come with a lot of record keeping, monitoring, and reporting. We can help to eliminate the burden of keeping up with the requirements of each scheme.
  • Minimise risk: We can assist you in remaining compliant with all voluntary and mandated Government schemes, minimising the risk of potential penalties and loss of income.
  • Maximise income: Our team of industry experts help you to take advantage of incentive schemes and new opportunities as they arise, making the most out of your energy assets.
  • Provide industry expertise: The energy landscape is continuously changing, and our team of industry experts can advise on the feasibility of future products and advise on changes to existing and new legislation.
  • Meet your net zero targets: Now is the time to act to begin the journey of meeting net zero by 2050. Many retailers have set their target for all suppliers to be net zero by 2030 and we can help advise and implement the best strategy for your business.

Our in-house team can deliver the vast majority of technical and compliance services that farmers, growers and other businesses need. Our website offers a full list of the services we can offer as well as access to news, views and blogs, keeping you up to date on the latest movements in the industry.
