Australia Case Study 5

Country: Australia
Industry: Retail
Service: Rate/Tariff Analysis, Energy Procurement

Client: One of Australia’s largest retailers with 40 sites across the country retained NUS Consulting to review and tender its electricity purchases.

Result: NUS Consulting achieved savings in excess of A$300,000 on behalf of the client.

Summary: After carrying out the initial tender, we advised the client not to contract immediately as, although prices had been increasing significantly, we expected them to decline in the near future. Two months later, as we were carrying out a second tender, NUS was able to secure pricing 20 percent lower than the initial proposals. After carrying out an analysis of the client’s network tariffs we were able to identify eight locations where an alternate tariff would produce savings. The total cost reduction was over A$300,000 per annum.
