Purchase Direct has been shortlisted for two major energy awards on the back of our successful energy procurement, contract management and energy management consultancy services.

We have been shortlisted for the ‘Best Advice’ award from The Energy Live Consultancy Awards (TELCA) 2017, ran by Energy Live News. We won the award in 2015 and hope to repeat our success this year. We have also been shortlisted for the Energy Management Champion Award, a category we were also shortlisted in last year.

In the energy field, we provide utility purchasing, monitoring and energy management services which are designed to deliver lower utility costs, control of expenditure and carbon reduction across a business and groups with multiple sites. Energy savings are made with the installation of smart meters and identifying and tackling areas of high usage as well as negotiating the best utility contracts with energy providers and aligning contracts across all sites. Energy audits and staff training also form part of the service.

Specifically relating to our energy management product, our bespoke approach using a proven series of steps which typically deliver 20% cost savings earned our place on the shortlist. The steps include undertaking an audit, benchmarking across our clients and the sector, continual measurement, reporting and training.

A TELCA award is the hallmark of providing exceptional energy consultancy and we are delighted to be in the running for two awards this year. To be shortlisted is a very exciting reflection of our achievements, particularly in relation to reducing both the carbon footprint and energy costs of our clients. We are hoping to exceed our success in 2015 and win both awards.
