Reducing Energy Related Expenses Requires A Plan

Efficiently managing your P • Q - I, energy requires a well organized, strategic course of action. To develop the perfect plan for you, SHERPA Energy Services does something most companies view as unconventional — we listen.

Planning Phase of Your Campaign:

  • We listen. We identify your goals, objectives, and review current energy initiatives.
  • We audit your calculator results, capital budget and investments, determine your appetite for risk, and historical usage data against current market conditions and developments to help you discover energy opportunities within your organization.
  • We work with you to formulate a Targeted Energy Strategy — one tailored specifically to meet your needs and objectives — that aims to accomplish both short and long term goals and rank orders action items to help you best achieve them.
  • We put the plan into action.
  • We create a positive feedback loop through ongoing market monitoring, keeping you perpetually informed, and allowing us to collaborate with you to make educated decisions, yielding optimal results.

Sourcing Your Needs at the Lowest Available Prices

Energy brokers forsake billions of dollars annually by procuring energy through antiquated methods, including sourcing solely from suppliers directly, using paper-based RFP's, and recruiting brokers who communicate via phone and e-mail.

SHERPA Energy Services has developed a reputable name in the industry by supplying a more efficient means of procuring energy, one that uses technology as a cornerstone and designed to facilitate competition.

Our energy solution is based solely on performance. If you aren't 100% satisfied with the results, you don't pay a thing!

By utilizing a medley of digital tools, including reverse and blind auctions, we are able to produce a vicious and transparent marketplace for our customers to transact. This results in more competition for their business with increased cost savings while allowing for greater accountability and control throughout the entire process.

With over 34,000 successful online events and access to the one of the largest networks of suppliers, Sherpa Energy has revolutionized the normally complex procurement process into a user-friendly, streamlined, efficient vehicle for cost savings and budget certainty.

Why our sourcing process makes sense:

  • Electronic RFPs, simplified bidding, and high close rates attract suppliers to Sherpa pricing events. More suppliers in attendance means more suppliers competing for your business, ultimately yielding lower prices.
  • The auction design and dynamic nature of the online events provide you and the suppliers real-time price discovery that exists nowhere else in the market. This helps bidders sharpen their pencils to win your business while allowing you to test various products and terms to find your sweet spot.
  • Costs are further mitigated by faster award times, thus minimizing supplier risk premiums.

Risk Management – Protect Yourself from Price Fluctuations

Prone to sudden and dramatic price swings, energy is an extremely unstable and unpredictable commodity to work with. Further complicated by countless rules, regulations, and price structures, energy management is no easy task in today's marketplace.

In order to effectively combat energy's capricious, fickle nature, SHERPA Energy Services has integrated Risk Management into the Planning process of every client engagement. We collaborate with you to better understand your risk tolerance and purchasing objectives to develop an energy risk policy (or support your current one) that is tailored specifically to suit your needs – is your priority to buy under your budget, protect yourself against major price changes, or buy as low as possible or better than your competition?

This policy can influence future decisions, limit your profit–at–risk, and help you achieve your purchasing goals. We'll not only apply this policy to source and secure the best energy products for you, but we'll also proactively manage your exposure throughout the contract terms.

Our "trigger-based" method allows you to track progress against your budget, and stay ahead of the curve in this fast-moving market. At SHERPA Energy Services, we use three kinds of automated triggers to help manage risk.

Automated Triggers

  • Executable (for natural gas only) – An automated transaction occurs based on price thresholds – high and low – determined in conjunction with the customer. With this type of trigger, you can hedge against runaway highs and capitalize on attractive lows in a timely and efficient manner, all within the framework of your established risk management strategy.
  • Informational – Once a pre-determined market price (high or low) is reached, a trigger automatically alerts you and your team at Sherpa Energy. An e-mail is sent to all parties, sparking a discussion on whether or not to transact.
  • Market Update – A time-based trigger that allows you to receive routine market pricing updates relative to your current contract. This assists in monitoring progress against your budget and staying on top of market movements & trends.

Energy Efficiency = Cost Efficiency

Efficiency targets the Q in your P • Q – i energy management equation, helping reduce the quantity of energy your facilities consume and, therefore, your overall cost.

If properly implemented, energy efficiency initiatives & tools can drastically reduce energy consumption at facilities by anywhere from 10% to upwards of 40%. This not only saves money by cutting down energy related costs and freeing up capital, it can reap operational benefits as well. Energy efficient incentives can dramatically increase productivity, resulting in a quicker (and oftentimes boosted) return on investment.

SHERPA Energy Services offers a vast array of energy efficiency solutions, ranging from simple tools to help manage your current configuration more efficiently, to major overhauls of existing infrastructure (such as lights, windows, HVAC systems, etc.), by replacing old, inefficient technologies with new efficient ones.

At SHERPA Energy Services, we have experts on staff with an extensive knowledge of energy usage and how best to reduce it; we know the available incentive programs and how to leverage them; we have experience planning and executing energy efficiency projects on time and according to budget; and we will work with you in a highly professional manner to capitalize on these opportunities, providing not only the most energy efficient, but cost efficient solutions the industry has to offer.

From initial energy audit through final project implementation, our expert team will:

  • Identify your consumption rates, energy management needs, and efficiency opportunities;
  • Gather facility-specific information;
  • Engineer effective solutions;
  • Present project recommendations;
  • Secure incentives;
  • Execute your energy efficiency projects; and
  • Monitor the results and identify new savings opportunities.

Finding the Balance Between Social & Financial Responsibility

Sustainability is an important element in today's business landscape, and has been a hot topic in recent years, especially in regards to energy. Environmentally friendly initiatives have been proven to drive greater value to those who implement them.

We understand both the social responsibility and the fiscal imperative of managing resources in a way that makes sense from a financial standpoint. As part of our planning process, we will work alongside you to determine just how “green” you want or need to be.

Whether through retrofitting infrastructure components, or the purchase of renewables, SHERPA Energy Services will provide you with an action plan and the means of meeting your sustainability goals in a cost-efficient manner with quantifiable outcomes.

Keeping You Lean and Green

  • Thanks to our in-depth knowledge of environmental policies and best practices, energy buyers of all sizes are reaping the benefits from SHERPA Energy Services' expertise, and you can too!

Maximize Income Opportunities Like Demand Response.

Now that the “smart grid” and eco-friendly sectors are gaining popularity and exerting influence, programs that offer rewards to adopt new energy equipment, methods, and behaviors are becoming more prevalent.

SHERPA Energy Servicescan help educate and inform you on incentive programs available to you and effectively integrate them into your project. Some of the most common incentives we recommend are:

Taking advantage of the incentive programs available to you yields increased income and reduces your energy costs simultaneously. With SHERPA Energy Services, you can make providers compete for your incentive compliance, just as you do for power and natural gas, which will ultimately get you the maximum return.

Saving You Lots of Money

  • Demand Response — These multi-billion-dollar grid-run programs come in many varieties, including Emergency, Synchronous/Spinning Reserves and Economic, offering payments to customers who can reduce energy use as necessary.
  • Renewable Energy and Efficiency Credits — Federal and State incentive programs reward and fund a full spectrum of clean-energy and energy-efficiency measures, including: sustainable building ventures, high-efficiency lighting and mechanical systems, and the implementation and utilization of solar panels.

3 Simple Steps

Step 1: Letter of Authorization

The Letter of Authorization gives an SHERPA Energyenergy advisor the ability to pull the historical usage from the past 12 months at no obligation to the customer. This data is necessary to analyze one's power consumption patterns and to develop an energy strategy that is customized to the needs of their business.

Step 3: Proposal

The last step is the proposal. This is the end result of all the suppliers bidding on your account after the energy auction. Once an agreement is structured to meet your needs, we then will facilitate a seamless switch from your current energy supplier to your new energy supplier. Our objective is the same as yours - to obtain the most economical supply arrangement available

GETTING STARTED

Our firm specializes in providing market knowledge to help structure the best energy procurement strategy for your company. Although styles vary among advisors, you will generally be asked to sign a Letter of Authorization (LOA) so that an advisor can begin pricing your energy load with vetted suppliers. This document obligates you to nothing more than allowing the advisors to receive usage from the regulated wires company that supports your load. In no instance will the advisor be able to sign a contract on your behalf or include any exclusivity language on the LOA.
