Energy Bureau

Energy Bureau

Only pay for the energy your organisation has consumed at the rates agreed with your utility suppliers

Reduce your energy bills and your impact on the planet with our Bureau service

The turbulent nature of the energy market has led to extreme volatility and exponential increases in the cost of your energy.

It is vital that your organisation makes sure that your energy bills are based on accurate consumption, the agreed unit rates from the procurement stage and billing errors are identified and corrected.

You would imagine that every bill issued by a utility supplier was correct, but that is simply not the case. Our Bureau services recover millions of pounds on behalf of our customers every year. Our analysis shows that between 3% – 4% of utility bills have errors.

Ensuring that your bills are correct and challenging the discrepancies is vital to the financial protection of your organisation. Bill validation is an insurance policy, a safety net to ensure that what your utility supplier bills you and asks you to pay is what you should be paying.

Guarantee your energy data is accurate

Let TEAM release your energy management resources from the time consuming task of utility suppliers bill validation. Save money and be assured that your energy procurement costs, budgeting, forecasting and stakeholder reporting activities are based on validated bills and consumption data.
