Building a Business Case for Advisory Services

  1. 1. BUILDING A BETTER BUSINESS CASE FOR ENERGY ADVISORY SERVICES
  2. 2. When markets are low, it’s easy to be lulled into a false sense that you no longer need to focus closely on energy costs. As a result, you could be leaving money on the table. Energy markets are dynamic and shifting: Prices can rise and fall without warning. Within these price shifts lie opportunities to leverage value.   Direct Energy Business Advisory Services can help manage your energy purchasing and earn you the most savings from market opportunities. THAT’S WHY WE’RE BRINGING OUR ADVISORY SERVICES TEAM TO THE TABLE FOR YOU. ENERGY IS ONE OF YOUR BIGGEST LINE ITEMS
  3. 3. Your operation’s risk tolerance should guide your energy purchasing decisions. DON’T RISK IT ALONE We offer a range of managed product options that allow for various degrees of risk exposure and reward. Our Advisory Services team can help you select the path that best suits your business goals, then provide ongoing guidance and support through the term of your plan.
  4. 4. Energy Advisory Services takes the pressure off your in-house energy team and helps you do more with less. We’ll help your business set goals, and craft and implement a dynamic energy strategy based on a customized analysis of your energy usage and operations. WE’RE YOUR SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE
  5. 5. Your strategy will focus not just on today’s energy picture, but tomorrow’s, too. If severe weather or other market-changing events–including complex regulatory changes–are ahead, we’ll adapt your energy management strategy to stay on target with your goals. And, we’ll make sure you receive clear communications every step of the way, including: EXPECT ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS Regular calls to report on your progress, usage, and market influences Multi-purpose reporting designed for every member of your team
  6. 6. If you’ve been leaning on fixed-price commodity products, the full potential of the energy markets likely remains opaque to you. Our Energy Advisory Services lifts the veil on market pricing to help you pinpoint purchasing opportunities–outside of just fixed purchases–that could yield savings. With our full suite of managed energy products, you can select strategy that positions your business to proactively take advantage of market shifts. LIFT THE VEIL ON ENERGY PRICES
  7. 7. UNCOVER HIDDEN ENERGY WASTE AND COSTS IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT PRICES Capitalizing on energy savings opportunities through your purchasing strategy is just part of the equation. We also take a close look at your operations to uncover inadvertent energy waste, since when and how much you use plays a big role in how much you spend. FOR EXAMPLE You may have equipment that is using more energy than it should because it’s malfunctioning and requires servicing or replacement. Certain charges on your energy bill may increase based on when you're using the most energy. We can help you identify and modify these usage shortcomings with targeted improvements to your facilities or operational changes resulting in lower costs.
