Energy Procurement & Supply Management
Our procurement objective is the same as that of our clients—to obtain the most economical supply arrangement available and to further reduce costs as we proactively identify new opportunities as the markets evolve. Tradition Energy’s supplier portfolio includes 179 electricity and natural gas suppliers around the world, so our clients have access to highly competitive pricing and a full array of energy management products and services that help identify, understand, and manage the variables that affect the total price paid for energy. Simplifying the purchase and management of energy requires a thorough understanding of the underlying wholesale market, power generation and delivery, and their impact on prices. Tradition Energy understands these factors better than anyone.
