Case Studies



ESPO provides a professional and comprehensive solution for the procurement of energy tailored to meet specific customer requirements.

We currently procure energy for over 7,500 local authority, public and charitable sector customers in Eastern England, which account for an annual expenditure in excess of £120m.  Our established frameworks cover a wide range of flexible energy contracts including:

  • Mains Gas Supply 
  • Electricity Contracts - including half hourly, non half hourly and unmetered supply contracts
  • Heating Fuels
  • Road Fuels
  • Coal

ESPO also offers a comprehensive range of additional services that can be tailored to meet your specific requirements.  They include:

  • Meter Operator services
  • Voltage Optimisation Equipment
  • Energy Display Certificates
  • Fuel Cards
  • Biomass

We can also establish more specific energy contracts for individual customers when our generic contracts do not cover the requirement. Please visit our dedicated ESPO Energy Website for further details.


Why use ESPO for energy procurement?

ESPO ensures best value and compliance with EU and UK legislation.  Our service is completely independent and auditable with all stages being fully documented.

Many of our frameworks have been established collaboratively by 'Pro5', Government Procurement Service (GPS), the Cabinet Office, Government Departments and other bodies, giving the combined purchasing power to secure prices and terms with suppliers that are much more competitive than would be possible for customers to achieve if purchasing on their own.

Whilst our frameworks cover a wide range of energy products and services, we know that customers may have more bespoke requirements that may not be fully covered.  In such cases, ESPO will engage the market on your behalf to establish a specific contract to meet your needs or suggest alternatives that offer equivalent performance.

ESPO actively participates in, manages and influences the energy supply chain through direct contact with industry regulators, Government departments, Parliamentary Committees and other key organisations such as National Grid and OFGEM.  We also actively participate in consumer groups.
