With Energy markets extremely volatile, timing is essential to get a cost-effective energy contract for your business. The NEM in Australia is undergoing significant changes, and when you are negotiating new energy pricing you need to make sure you’ve got all the current information at your fingertips. There are many things that can impact pricing, for example:
- Current Market trends
- Distributor network costs
- LNG export projects
- Federal and State legislation and policy changes
- Extreme weather events
These are just some of the factors putting pressure on market pricing. T&O’s independent team of experts constantly monitor wholesale markets to identify opportunities to enter into contract negotiation.
