Energy Buying Team of the Year - Energy Awards 2019
In no more than 1,000 words, please tell the judges why your entry should win.
Bear in mind that this entry is the main way to convince judges, who will not know the detail as intimately as you do, so it is important to set out a structured ‘pitch’, with evidence to back up any claims. The two main criticisms in judges’ feedback from past awards is ‘Did not provide enough a strong enough argument as to why they should win’ and ‘No data or evidence to back up claims.’
This award was introduced to emphasise the importance of teamwork in the procurement of energy. The Energy Buying Team of the year recognises a company's ability to devise and implement a purchasing strategy that manages energy prices in a controllable manner, while achieving below budget costs for gas and electricity procurement.
NB This category is not open to TPIs/Brokers, which have their own award.
