I have led with three charities, from multi-site high energy usage animal welfare organisations to a small single office low energy consumption organisation. In each case engagement with Energycentric has resulted in significant cost savings. The team take time to understand the bespoke needs of each organisation and provide a range of options without ever resorting to any ‘hard sell’ tactics. I would heartily recommend them to any Third Sector organisation looking to address the perennial issue of increasing energy bills.David Foulds
Energycentric has extensive knowledge of representing the charity sector for energy procurement. Their customer-focused approach means that they are always looking to get the best out of their energy providers, pushing back on costs to get the best price. Through Energycentric’s’ sector insight, industrious ethos and strong communication skills, Opus Energy has tailored a bespoke proposition to meet their charity customers’ needs.Steve James
I first met an Energycentric representative at the ACEVO Annual Conference in 2011, at a time when we were struggling to sort out the utilities for our brand new ExtraCare scheme in Birmingham. Within a week I had a visit, and within days they were able to sort out the problems with the incumbent supplier and had full understanding of a multi-site organisation. We saved 25% on our gas and electricity contracts in the process! We followed on with our remaining schemes as and when the contracts came up for renewal, and I am looking forward to joining the ACEVO Energy Basket.Jean-Luc Priez
Having contacted Energycentric following the endorsement from ACEVO in 2009, we have now been working with them for over a year on our energy needs. As a multi-site company, Energycentric’s knowledge has proved invaluable, and their ability to purchase gas and electricity at the right time has saved us thousands of pounds. We shall continue to work with Energycentric, at a time when saving money has never been more important.Paul Knott
We have been very pleased with the work Energycentric has done for our organisation, and the reduction in our energy costs has proved most welcome.Andrew Shanks
I have found the service offered by Energycentric to be extremely professional and efficient. By simply providing them with a Letter of Authority and copies of our last invoices, they were able to obtain details of our current contracts and then save us nearly 30% on our gas renewal and 25% on our electricity.Paula Chandler
Plymouth Age UK
Plymouth Age Concern has been working with Energycentric since 2009. As Plymouth Age Concern, an independent charity, we have to control our expenditure. With Energycentric working as our energy brokers we have managed to considerably reduce our costs in this area. I am very pleased with the service that they offer, saving us time in searching the market, with the outcome of keeping our energy expenditure to a minimum.Nigel Backhouse
TIP are delighted with the service and results provided by Energycentric.
Hadland Care Group
As a multi-site business, managing gas and electricity supplies is a job in itself. Add to that the need to constantly sort through energy prices that change by the day and you have major headache. Energycentric has taken all those problems away and also enabled us to keep our fuel costs within budget, at a time when prices are constantly increasing, through their market expertise and purchasing power.
Our relationship with Energycentric began in November 2010 following a recommendation we received from Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations (ACEVO). At that time Energycentric negotiated a new electricity contract for our 33 sites which delivered a significant saving on our electricity expenditure and also secured a programme of automated meter installation for most of our major sites. This additional feature of the contract will enable us to benefit from accurate monthly billing, removing the reliance on estimated meter readings and the budgetary implications that can cause on a contract of our size. The service we have received from Energycentric has been excellent. Our Account Manager, Helen O’Brien, has worked extremely hard to maintain regular dialogue between us and our energy suppliers, resulting in a partnership relationship between the three parties that we believe is unusual in these particular markets. We also receive additional support from one of Energycentric’s Directors, Paul Lomas, whose expertise in the energy markets has given us a valuable insight into the market forces and features that are relevant to us. I would highly recommend Energycentric’s service to anyone who requires a reliable, forward-thinking and innovative energy broker.
Club Systems International
Energycentric have managed to keep our energy costs down at a time when prices have been rising consistently, saving us time by sourcing prices from all the energy suppliers and then presenting the information in a clear and precise format. By giving us a clear list of options, together with their recommendations, they left the final decision with us. This allowed us to remain in control, whilst keeping the administration to a bare minimum. We are thankful they also organised all of the paperwork too. Our energy information has now been collated in one manageable format, and if any problems do occur we are grateful they are more than happy to sort these out for us. We highly recommend the service we have received from Energycentric. Every company looking to save money without incurring cost should look to use their services.

I cannot recommend Laura and Energycentric North West enough. She has more than gone the extra mile, and has the clout and knowledge to fight these large companies and get the best for every size of business. If you have not yet used Laura’s services I recommend that you do. I have, and saved 15% off my utility bills this year, as did the charity for which I am a trustee.
When Yorkshire Mediation moved office in April 2015 we had a whole raft of administrative issues to deal with, changing address details with various supplier and contacts. Amongst the practicalities needing attention was the sorting out of our energy supplier. It was a relief to be able to rely on the team at Energycentric who run the ACEVO Energy Basket to take the headache of energy procurement away from us. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other charities, and will certainly continue using them once our current energy contract expires.Daniel Knight
We have been with Energycentric for several years, during which time we have received excellent and timely service and advice on our gas and electricity contracts. We feel confident that they are looking after our best interests and we are happy to leave it to them to monitor the market on our behalf and to provide us with a comprehensive summary of what is available, with their recommendations on trends and cost-effective options. Helen was also instrumental in ensuring that we received the correct VAT treatment as a registered charity.Tom Conlin
