Energy procurement is the process of sourcing and acquiring the necessary energy supplies for a business or organisation. ARO’s energy market experts know how to navigate the energy procurement process and can deliver an energy procurement strategy specific to your commercial and sustainability goals.

Energy procurement involves assessing energy needs, analysing market conditions, and negotiating contracts with energy suppliers. Organisations may use various procurement strategies, such as fixed-price contracts, variable pricing, or renewable energy agreements, to optimise cost and sustainability.

The UK is no longer directly bound by the EU procurement rules. However, as the UK has joined the GPA in its own right, it is bound to the minimum standards of the GPA.

Energy tendering is a competitive process where energy suppliers bid to provide services or supply energy to a buyer, often a business or government entity. This process helps buyers secure the best possible terms, including pricing and contractual conditions, for their energy needs.

A renewable energy tender is a specific type of procurement process focused on sourcing energy from renewable sources. In this process, organisations or governments invite bids from renewable energy providers to supply a certain amount of energy from sustainable and environmentally friendly energy sources.
