LHNRG Energy Consultants’s unparalleled focus on the details of proposals, pricing structures, and contracts ensures that clients get the maximum value out of their procurement strategy and minimize the potential for the surprise of an unexpected cost after contract execution.

Supplier Qualification & Proposals

LHNRG Energy Consultant maintains relationships with over 10 leading suppliers of electricity & natural gas in North America. Our insight into their operations allows our firm to:

  • Develop detailed pre-qualification information on potential suppliers to narrow the competitive landscape to the most preferred suppliers
  • Develop a favorable solicitation based on the energy strategy developed with the client
  • Work with suppliers in customizing their products to fit the specific needs of the clients’ energy strategy
  • Supplier Comparison & Analysis

Once LHNRG Energy Consultants has received detailed proposals from suppliers, a thorough and in-depth analysis of all of the proposals is conducted and a detailed comparison is prepared for clients. Key areas of comparison and evaluation include:

  • Initial pricing, and what cost drivers are included or passed through to the client
  • The calculation methodology for pass through cost components and recommendations as to whether those methods are reasonable
  • The risk/reward balance of any pass-through components (i.e. will taking a certain cost as pass through ultimately result in higher or lower overall costs)
  • Comparison of all contractual provisions
  • Overall supplier capabilities, financial wellness, and customer service
  • Contract Negotiation & Execution

Once we have received proposals and have made a supplier recommendation to our clients, we proactively proceed to negotiate and execute a contract with the supplier that is most favorable. As part of the negotiation process, LHNRG Energy Consultants will:
