Health Care & Education

Providing an OJEU energy procurement framework designed to deliver reduced cost and improved standard of service for NHS Trust, Healthcare and Education sectors.

Managing Health Care & Education Energy Costs

In the past, healthcare and education organisations have understandably, focused on budget certainty. Today’s challenges require budget holders to also minimise costs wherever possible. Trident’s OJEU compliant framework including multiple suppliers, provides a competitive environment for each contract renewal. Along with our innovative risk management strategies, this has proven to deliver both budget certainty, and crucially, lower prices.

That’s only the start. All suppliers on the framework have a greed to deliver services to a set of stringent KPI’s, reducing time and hassle resulting in a much improved customer experience.

With around 60% of electricity costs now associated with levies and system (delivery) charges, Trident will undertake a thorough analysis of your consumption profile and provide realistic and cost effective ways to reduce, and in some cases, eliminate many of these costs.

Our robust invoice validation service allows us to manage, audit and recover energy costs often resulting in refunds well in to six figures.

What our clients think

Blackpool and the Fylde College procured the services of Trident to write an assessment report on the potential skills gaps in and around Lancashire in the energy sector. The report focused on linking the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) priorities and identifying the key markets where the College could develop a successful curriculum portfolio and also mapped various energy industry requirements and proposed a course structure under a number of key areas of potential such as trailblazers.
