The Details

Client: Saint-Gobain Building Distribution Solutions: Energy Procurement Date: May 2016 Team: Effective Utilities

The Client

Saint-Gobain designs, manufactures and distributes materials and solutions to the construction and development of the built environment. Saint-Gobain Building Distribution is the leading distributor of building materials, ceramic tiles and heating and plumbing solutions.

The Motivation

The client wanted Flexible Gas Cash Out tender and full cost analysis on a two year contract. Effective Utilities was tasked with sourcing a reliable energy supplier that could meet stringent billing and admin requirements, and manage a 660 site fluid portfolio.

The Plan

Saint-Gobain wanted to take out a 2 year gas supply contract, Effective Utilities tendered out to the market to help secure the client a saving. A 2 year arrangement was set up to enable Effective Utilities to help manage the full site portfolio alongside Saint-Gobain. We will also be working with Ian, Procurement Director – Facilities and Services at Saint-Gobain Building Distribution on varying energy management projects to help reduce future gas consumption and costs.

The Outcome

The project went extremely well with a number of energy suppliers providing competitive flexible product offers. DONG was selected as the preferred supplier generating an initial £127,782 saving on their current contract.

The Future

At Effective Utilities our work is not complete once a contract has been signed, we work with our clients to further reduce consumption and yearly spend even further. We will therefore liaise and support Saint-Gobain by providing industry information and changes, as well as any market analysis in order to aid further reductions over the contract period.
