STATUS - Expiring (New solution in development)

The NEPO Electricity Framework provides users with access to an electricity supply contract and associated services to non-domestic sites. This includes sites that are settled on the Half Hourly (HH), non-Half Hourly (NHH) and Unmetered Supply (UMS) market.  The framework can be joined by individual sites or, more commonly, a public sector organisation’s full estate.  This framework is currently being used by local authorities, schools and academies, emergency services and higher education organisations.

Some of the NEPO Electricity Framework Agreement benefits are provided below:

Fully Flexible Purchasing: The NEPO Energy Team has a wealth of experience in purchasing both electricity and gas from the wholesale commodity market using a fully flexible agreement.  This approach allows NEPO to transact on the volatile energy market and to optimise customer prices by taking advantage of reductions in the market price whilst conversely protecting against increases.  A robust Risk and Purchasing Strategy, aligned to participating organisations' risk appetite, is used to govern all purchasing activity.

 
Fixed Contracts: The framework agreement includes the option to place fixed price electricity contracts with a variety of different contract terms available.
   
Dedicated Account Management and Contract Management team: The solution supplier (npower) and the NEPO Energy Team work together to provide a professional, comprehensive and hassle-free service to customers.  The npower Account Management Team and the NEPO Contract Management team work in partnership to ensure that customers receive an organised and straightforward implementation. NEPO then manages the delivery of the service on behalf of the customer, ensuring that npower continue to meet and exceed the requirements of individual customers.  
 
Transparent Annual Billing Rates: Each site is allocated an annual billing rate dependent on the measurement and profile class. Electricity costs are complex and are made up of a number of different charges associated with transmission, distribution and tax, in addition to the cost of the commodity.  A transparent breakdown of the annual billing rates is provided.
 
Energy Cost Forecasting and Budget Certainty: NEPO frequently publish Energy Cost Forecasting bulletins which can assist customers with their budget setting processes.  In addition to the use of fixed contracts, budget certainty can also be provided by NEPO via fully flexible purchasing.
 
An online query management system: Access to the npower online query management system “Encompass”.
 
Provision of Automatic Meter Reading (AMR): The installation and access to data from AMR.
