Alder King is a top 25 UK property consultancy headquartered in Bristol managing a portfolio of properties across the South West and Wales. Optimised Energy have been engaged since 2009 to provide a Managed Energy Services approach covering energy procurement and invoice validation. The client’s priorities are to safeguard accurate utility processing, while ensuring service charge stability and driving the sustainability agenda. Optimised Energy has been uniquely placed to deliver the required outcomes in these areas.
Each property has its own contracting and management requirements, and a range of different tenants all of which is taken into account during the provision of managed energy services.
Optimised Energy has assisted Alder King with reviewing available capacities at properties coming into the portfolio and whether these can be reduced or increased, meter removals – at a site that needs to be demolished/ renovated, arranging removals with the suppliers, confirming whether properties will be part of CRC reporting prior to a site being taken on under Alder King’s management.
