When The Eden Project started the process of renewing its energy supply contract it wanted expert support and consultancy to ensure it made the right, ethical and environmentally-responsible choice, so called on the Total Energy Solutions team to help.
Our team helped The Eden Project, one of Europe’s most popular and recognisable destinations, with its formal tender process to ensure it was getting economically beneficial bids from providers that sourced energy locally and with a strong environmental focus.
We spent time with the Eden Project team, understanding their needs and their requirements for business energy supply and supporting them through the tender process, including drafting the specification and supporting the shortlisting and final interviews.
Our team deals with energy supply contracts every day and have seen all the pitfalls and issues that crop up many times before, so we were able to make sure The Eden Project was not caught out by those.
We went to the market for The Eden Project and obtained quotes from nine suppliers that we were confident would be able to fulfil the basic criteria in the contract. We then worked with The Eden Project on the final shortlists and sat in on the pitches, providing expert advice and support throughout.
Our advice helped The Eden Project to make a considered decision on its energy contract ensuring that it fulfilled all the strict criteria that it wanted to meet.
Charles Sainsbury, Energy and Sustainability Manager at The Eden Project, said: “When we were making the decision on our future energy supply we wanted expertise with us to ensure we made the right choice and Total Energy Solutions provided that vital support that we needed.
“Their team was very honest and thorough with us throughout the whole process, telling us the facts rather than what we might have wanted to hear, and they ensured we had a contract and a supplier that we were confident met our needs.
“The Total Energy Solutions team proved they have very detailed knowledge of the energy sector, what the issues are and how to secure a good deal for their clients.”
