SDCE 100 2005 Case Study:



  • Energy offerings differ from state to state, as well as territory to territory within states.


  • Opportunities to buy energy at competitive rates can be fast breaking and time-critical; miss the moment and you lose the opportunity to buy.


  • Requesting an energy bid is a complex task, requiring the gathering of thousands of data elements.


  • Manual pursuit of a competitive energy bid can take up to three or four week, or 120-180 hours of time.
The Solution



  • Develop energy sourcing strategy and priorities.

  • Identify energy market savings opportunities.

  • Procure energy contracts using online procurement.
