A commercial energy broker can help your business navigate the energy market. The main role of a business energy broker is to find and present the best energy deals to clients. As well as this they are responsible for maintaining client relationships and ensuring clients are aware of when their energy contracts are going to expire.

Finding a good commercial energy deal and knowing when to switch can be a hassle for your business.  There are many advantages of keeping on top of the energy market and switching your energy suppliers to find the best deal.  Doing the work on your own is possible but will require a lot of time and resources.

If you feel like your business does not have the time or in-depth knowledge to ensure that you are securing the best energy deals, then an energy broker may be best suited for your energy needs. You can get a free quote on our website today.


What do energy brokers do?

Investing in working with an energy broker can save your business thousands. However, we understand you may be unsure whether this is the right choice for you without knowing exactly what an energy broker does.

Energy brokers are the experts that are between the client and the energy supplier. Brokers do not directly sell the energy: they present the wholesale rates and use their expertise to find what deal is best for your business.

One main reason for getting an energy broker will be to get price comparisons for your business energy from different energy suppliers. Energy brokers maintain relationships with several energy suppliers. They will then analyse this list to find the best supplier for your business.

Brokers usually take into the account factors such as price, market trends, and contract terms. This allows them to make an expert decision on what is best for your business.

Another service energy brokers provide is in-depth market expertise. Energy procurement may be something that you do not have enough expertise in within your business.  Therefore, it is better and cheaper for you to outsource this work to another company. This way you can let someone who has the market intelligence take care of your energy deal.


Advantages of using an energy broker

  • Saving money - Using an energy broker can help you switch to suppliers with the best prices and save you from paying more than you should be for your energy needs. Brokers have trusted relationships with suppliers which allows them to negotiate and reduce your bills.
  • Saving time - The energy market is very complex and industry changes are happening by the minute. Staying on top of this can be a difficult task to juggle especially when trying to run a business. We can compare tariffs from all our suppliers while you can focus on business needs.
