Our approach is holistic, encompassing the framework of our Seven Levers of Commodity Management. We believe mastering the Seven Levers – and the interplay among them – is the key to managing energy more strategically. This ensures energy decisions are not made in a vacuum, but rather optimized within the context of business goals, market realities and evolving opportunities. The Seven Levers are:
Efficiently managing your P x Q - I, energy requires a well organized, strategic course of action. To develop the perfect plan for you, Savant Energy Services does something most companies view as unconventional - we listen.
E = (P • Q – I)
(Total Energy Cost = Price times Quantity minus Incentives)
In conjunction with this essential framework, SAVANT supplies the full range of services customers need to make this equation work for them, tools and approaches that can lower energy prices (P), curb consumption (Q) and/or increase incentive program payments (I). Together these services work in tandem to help our clients proactively manage energy to reduce their overall spend, advance business goals and, ultimately, move beyond fighting their energy battles to winning the war.
Putting this all together for your company in an easy-to-understand way that accurately accounts for the contributions of, and interplay among, various energy cost drivers is the inspiration behind the Seven Levers and the growing, innovative energy management product portfolio we are developing to manage them.
Energy brokers forsake billions of dollars annually by procuring energy through antiquated methods, including sourcing solely from suppliers directly, using paper-based RFP's, and recruiting brokers who communicate via phone and e-mail.
Savant Energy Services has developed a reputable name in the industry by supplying a more efficient means of procuring energy, one that uses technology as a cornerstone and designed to facilitate competition.
By utilizing a medley of digital tools, including reverse and blind auctions, we are able to produce a vicious and transparent marketplace for our customers to transact. This results in more competition for their business with increased cost savings while allowing for greater accountability and control throughout the entire process.
With over 34,000 successful online events and access to the one of the largest networks of suppliers, Savant Energy Services has revolutionized the normally complex procurement process into a user-friendly, streamlined, efficient vehicle for cost savings and budget certainty.
Executable (for natural gas only) – An automated transaction occurs based on price thresholds – high and low – determined in conjunction with the customer. With this type of trigger, you can hedge against runaway highs and capitalize on attractive lows in a timely and efficient manner, all within the framework of your established risk management strategy.
Informational – Once a pre-determined market price (high or low) is reached, a trigger automatically alerts you and your team at Savant Energy. An e-mail is sent to all parties, sparking a discussion on whether or not to transact.
Market Update – A time-based trigger that allows you to receive routine market pricing updates relative to your current contract. This assists in monitoring progress against your budget and staying on top of market movements & trends.
Prone to sudden and dramatic price swings, energy is an extremely unstable and unpredictable commodity to work with. Further complicated by countless rules, regulations, and price structures, energy management is no easy task in today's marketplace.
In order to effectively combat energy's capricious, fickle nature, Savant Energy Services has integrated Risk Management into the Planning process of every client engagement. We collaborate with you to better understand your risk tolerance and purchasing objectives to develop an energy risk policy (or support your current one) that is tailored specifically to suit your needs – is your priority to buy under your budget, protect yourself against major price changes, or buy as low as possible or better than your competition?
This policy can influence future decisions, limit your profit–at–risk, and help you achieve your purchasing goals. We'll not only apply this policy to source and secure the best energy products for you, but we'll also pro-actively manage your exposure throughout the contract terms.
Our "trigger-based" method allows you to track progress against your budget, and stay ahead of the curve in this fast-moving market. At Savant Energy Services, we use three kinds of automated triggers to help manage risk.
Efficiency targets the Q in your P x Q – i energy management equation, helping reduce the quantity of energy your facilities consume and, therefore, your overall cost.
If properly implemented, energy efficiency initiatives & tools can drastically reduce energy consumption at facilities by anywhere from 10% to upwards of 40%. This not only saves money by cutting down energy related costs and freeing up capital, it can reap operational benefits as well. Energy efficient incentives can dramatically increase productivity, resulting in a quicker (and oftentimes boosted) return on investment.
Savant Energy Services offers a vast array of energy efficiency solutions, ranging from simple tools to help manage your current configuration more efficiently, to major overhauls of existing infrastructure (such as lights, windows, HVAC systems, etc.), by replacing old, inefficient technologies with new efficient ones.
At Savant Energy Services, we have experts on staff with an extensive knowledge of energy usage and how best to reduce it; we know the available incentive programs and how to leverage them; we have experience planning and executing energy efficiency projects on time and according to budget; and we will work with you in a highly professional manner to capitalize on these opportunities, providing not only the most energy efficient, but cost efficient solutions the industry has to offer.
