Disrupt Your Energy Purchasing Perception
If you want to challenge yourself and your organisation to be more creative and innovative and challenge how you pay for your energy, you have to remove all preconceived notions about how the UK energy market works. For nearly two decades suppliers have been nothing more than billing aggregators, collating various regulated delivery charges, environmental taxes and wholesale energy costs, who then add a margin on top as a cost to serve, all before sending the actual final invoice to the customer.
History has shown us that because of the extreme complexities of this process, and the evolution of charges over the years, that suppliers don’t always get this right, or even worse add additional risk premiums onto some of these 3rd party charges. There is a distinct lack of transparency when it comes to how a customer is billed even with the most open of suppliers or detailed billing, and is often accepted without challenging because of the complex nature of the market.
Digital Disruption of Energy Purchasing
In an industry that is over 20-years old, technology is advancing at such a pace that for the first time ever the technology has surpassed the process it was supposed to be supporting. Smart data can now create a full visual pricing transparency and this clearer understanding enables better buying decisions to be taken. These insights enable customers to now manage and purchase energy in ways that simply where just not previously possible.
Now imagine an energy supplier that is so disruptive that the days of the traditional paper bill are over, and billing becomes digital and available in real time, broken down into all of the component parts that make up your invoice, so as an end user you can truly understand how all of the charges make up your final total energy bill. Not just for the current month, but historically and into the future, allowing a true real time digital forecast and live budget analysis for your ongoing energy costs.
This total cost would include all of the non-commodity charges and access to flexible wholesale energy purchasing, delivered all at the market prevailing rate, with 100% market price transparency. This level of data is so powerful and so intuitive that it allows end users to uncover opportunities for performance improvements, as well as energy and cost savings through clearer buying signals.
Optimising Performance to Drive Savings
With advanced analytics and sophisticated algorithms its possible to ask a multitude of what if questions from the platform to improve performance such as;
Q1. What if I was to shift demand, how would it affect my energy price?
Q2. If I avoid red band DUOs charges what will it save me?
Q3. What do my TRIAD charges look like next year?
For customers also able to harness the power of demand side response schemes or have available load to shed the platform also has a built in market cash out module. However unlike other supplier solutions the generated income is displayed on the dashboard, giving detail information on not only the cost but also generated revenue from these events.
A significant amount of investment has gone into the supplier’s web based platform with further ongoing enhancements constantly planned. Both the code and the platform supporting the solution are at the cutting edge of current technology, and it’s this unique combination that delivers the fastest most reliable solution on the market. Desktop, mobile and tablet formats, also allow for on demand experience and thanks to mobile and tablet technology, it provides consumers with the power to directly connect from the palm of their hands.
Direct Access to Wholesale Energy Markets
Our platform provides access to the wholesale energy market and allows you to buy all or part of your future energy requirements at any point. Take advantage of current prices as the wholesale market changes, so you can purchase at the right time, and at the right price to make real cost savings.
We’ll provide a suite of modules and analysis tools, information and industry insight to help you purchase your energy more successfully. Including 100% transparent pricing, detailed market reporting and direct access to real-time market prices.
Risk Managed Purchasing
Your dedicated Account Manager will work closely with you to make sure you’ll get the most from our platform and provide additional valuable insight into what’s happening in the energy market. We’ll also keep you up to date on how your current buying strategy is performing with full market and buying reports.
Disrupt Your Perceptions
Traditionally suppliers have always locked customers into typical 2 or 3-year energy contracts. However such is the confidence in this product that there is no contractual tie in, and customers have the freedom to leave at any point, placing the emphasis on service and delivery firmly at the very heart of this product.
How we Boost our Customers’ Competitiveness
To compete in an increasingly challenging environment, customers need to find new ways to optimise energy purchasing and track budget performance. Using advanced energy data analytics and the digital technologies provided by the platform, Catalyst can leverage your consumption profile data to break costs down to 30-minute intervals and then build this back up from hourly, daily, weekly, monthly or per annum. As all costs are fully delivered then it’s impossible to find a lower price point on any given day, and with built in energy buying algorithms set against your preferred purchasing strategy or budget requirements this is truly a unique concept.
Challenge Conformity and Traditional Billing Problems
As an energy user you understand the complexities of the wholesale energy market, the myriad of 3rd party costs and the lack of transparency when it comes to how you are charged for all these component parts that make up your final bill. Despite improvements over the years billing is still a major issue for large users, as bills are often difficult to understand and despite the best efforts of suppliers still arrive weeks after the energy has actually been consumed. Our live dashboard provides you with 100% cost transparency, the ability to access everything upstream at cost price, including wholesale energy market prices and all in real time.
Revolutionise Energy Purchasing - Try Before You Buy
Our service allows customers to test our product for free before deciding whether its right for you and fits your requirements.
Again unlike any other energy supplier we are able to take your historical energy consumption, profile and shape the data for pricing purchases and then provide a live pricing quote based of the current commodity and non-commodity charges. This provides you with a live reference price for benchmarking and comparison purposes updated as market prices change.
Your account login provides access to a range of analysis tools and modules so you can evaluate the platform or appraise an existing contract offer already in place, or even use the platform to validate an existing provider or invoice.
As this data can be rolled backwards or algorithmically profiled to roll forwards we are able to demonstrate one of two things.
1. Using your previous contract sign date we can accurately tell you what you could have had, if you had used this platform to buy your current energy contract.
2. We can provide a transparent and accurate budget forecast for future horizons based on live energy market prices.
So no more having to wait for offers to arrive from suppliers and simply refresh offers at a time that suits you.
