The hidden costs of energy have a significant impact on a company’s bottom line. Buy energy more intelligently, and businesses are better placed to succeed.
Comparatively low energy prices can undermine the fact that commodity costs, or the energy used to power a facility, accounts for less than 50% of a utility bill. However, the other half of the equation, non-commodity charges, continues to increase. Even in a time of low-commodity costs, companies with a more strategic approach to buying energy can save significantly on utility bills.
With energy and data flowing, not just off the grid, but increasingly onto the grid, today’s energy market is evolving faster than ever. At the same time, the steady decline of oil and energy prices has created a false sense of security for buyers. Convention and history dictate that the pendulum will eventually swing in the other direction, from stability to volatility. But in the meantime, organisations have to find ways to prepare and minimise their exposure to unstable markets and buy energy more cost-effectively. In an era of increasing energy complexity, businesses need a more strategic, data-centric approach to cost containment. Understanding and tackling the hidden costs of energy will deliver immediate and substantial savings. To succeed, those who buy energy need to identify the environmental and renewable costs, distribution costs, and capacity and transmission costs, as well as energy commodity costs, to get a true picture of where their money goes, and how to buy energy for less.
