Electricity Supply and Ancillary Services

Contract ID: RM1075

Start Date: 27/03/2015

End Date: 26/03/2019

Description

Electricity supply, metered half-hourly, and ancillary services.

 

 

 

This agreement provides half-hourly metered electricity supply and ancillary services. It offers flexible short and long term procurement.

Robust governance ensures the purchasing strategy is adhered to and unnecessary risks are not taken with public money. Governance includes an independent risk team, an external governance board with representation from CCS customers, and an independent market expert. There is also an online customer service portal Energy.gov.

RM3791 provides non half-hourly metered supply.

Short term locked product

Energy is bought 6 months before delivery starts and supplied at a fixed price.

Short term variable product

Energy is bought 6 months before delivery and continues throughout the delivery year.

The price varies according to market prices but with a 6 month lag.

Long term variable product

Energy is bought much closer to the start of supply and the price tracks market prices. However, buying in bulk enables CCS energy traders to reduce your exposure to unfavourable market conditions, such as sudden increases in price.
