Everything you need to know about the Supply Clusters Energy Blitz

An energy auction is a method of procuring energy supply contracts. During an auction, suppliers bid for your contract. You supply the specifications and volume, and a panel of suppliers offer their best price.

An auction provides live competitive tension during the bidding process. This should mean that the price you receive is better than during a typical tender situation.

No. Our energy blitz works on the momentum of having a large volume in the market at one time. Our energy blitz avoids the complexities of a group auction and reliance on other signatories in the group.

Different businesses have different load profiles and contract needs. A group auction works best when all participants have similar load profiles. And, all must agree to operate under the same contract terms.

Our Energy Blitz maximises the benefits of group volume, but with tailored results and avoiding the downsides of a group auction. The intention is for a high volume of clients to auction their contracts in a short period.

Each auction is individual. And every participant receives pricing specific to their load profile and contract needs. There is no risk of a pricing offer contingent on others.

All you need to do is be ready to take up the offer within the validity time frame.

A reverse auction is a live event. Energy suppliers bid on the same contract volume and terms within a fixed time slot. Retailers can see the current bids, but not who they are from. This provides bidding transparency and heavy competition between suppliers. All are aiming to offer the best price at the time.

We will run the auction through our partner Energy Action.

Energy Action will use their energy auction platform to run simultaneous auctions.

At the auction there will be a panel of multiple retailers ready to bid for your energy business on the day.

All you need to do for now is register your interest by May 8, 2020. We will be in touch once you register to get more information from you.

We aim to make this as easy as possible and with minimal effort on your part. Once you register, we will be in touch with you to provide documentation.

No. We provide your information to Energy Action who will run the auction. They will share energy specifications with the bidding energy retailers only. No other participant companies will have access to your information.

Retail electricity prices for Commercial & Industrial customers have declined.

We have seen some dramatic downward trends over the last few years with our analysis indicating we may have reached the bottom of the market. To make things better, environmental charges has steadily been declining which when combined now makes energy procurement extremely attractive.

If your electricity contract is due to expire within the next 18 months now is a great time to go to market as you are likely to see amazing savings. The Supply Clusters Energy Blitz will help you fight for an even greater deal in what is a very competitive market.

Do you have current energy contracts due to expire/renew in the next 18 months. You need to act before future pricing starts moving upwards.

An auction is one of the fastest ways to secure the best deal. You can take advantage of competition with minimal effort from you.

The greatest challenge clients face is being ready to sign off on their offer. The retailers put their best prices forward which means a short time frame to accept their offer.

They cannot offer a long validity on the deals. If you commit to an auction, you need to be ready to take a deal. The decision of who you choose is completely up to you, but time is critical.

Any projected price offers are dependent on your current contract, your electricity load profile and when you took them up.

If you negotiated your current contracts at a high market price – you can expect to achieve a better result.

Current market prices can be viewed via the Energy Action Price Index

Do you spend over $25,000 per annum on electricity?
Can you take immediate action to agree to a contract offer after the auction?
Do you have energy contracts due to expire before June 2021?
Then the answer is definitely yes.

The Australian Energy Exchange platform has been running for almost 20 years. It is a marketplace where large businesses, spending over $25,000/year, go to buy their electricity. Its success comes from the engagement of energy retailers who are very active.
