Energising procurement: Local Government Association launches national energy procurement category strategy

As you may have seen, the Local Government Association (LGA) recently launched its national energy procurement category strategy.

Councils collectively spend over £773 million each year on energy, which is one of the largest controllable overheads in many council buildings. The strategy identifies a number of opportunities for authorities to minimise their costs, generate income and maximise benefits for their local communities through their energy procurement actions.

The document also sets out the important role that public buying organisations like CCS can play in helping you buy energy, reduce your demand and achieve best value. We contributed to the strategy with information about our upcoming deals including:

  • a new online utilities price comparison and switching website for lower consuming
    public sector customers, and our
  • utilities management software, metering and ancillary services framework, designed to help customers unlock savings and efficiencies across their utilities portfolios
