Public Sector FM Event Show Exhibitor Profile: West Mercia Energy

West Mercia Energy is a leading purchasing organisation with over 25 years experience managing energy contracts for the public sector.

Publicly owned by four local authorities, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Councils respectively, WME specialises in the provision of energy and associated services for the public sector.

Formerly a division within West Mercia Supplies, upon sale of the company in 2012 the energy division was retained and rebranded as West Mercia Energy with an aim to provide highly efficient and cost-effective energy procurement for the four Member Authorities.

Since then however, WME has grown considerably and now provides energy services to a range of public sector organisations including ,12 Local Authorities, numerous Town & District Councils, the NHS, Blue Light Services and circa 2,000 schools, academies and colleges.

Despite significant growth, WME’s focus remains on delivering a personable, high quality, energy service to all our customers and we believe our excellent customer retention rate of 99.6% (18/19) is reflective of the service that we provide.

Service Provisions

WME provide a range of services designed to meet the requirements of our public sector customers.

Procurement Only Service:

Customers can access our OJEU compliant energy frameworks for gas and electricity and WME will manage the energy procurement through an agreed risk managed buying strategy designed to match each organisations requirement.

In addition, we provide comprehensive supplier and contract management.

Fully Managed Service:

Under the Fully Managed offering, in addition to operating an agreed risk-managed buying strategy, day to day queries are managed by our team of energy experts and a comprehensive bill validation service is provided. In addition, we provide siteworks support and an energy monitoring portal amongst a range of other services to ensure the contract runs smoothly.

This service is designed to free up your energy team to focus on key energy matters such implementing energy efficiency measures and achieving your organisations carbon reduction targets.

But don’t just take our word for it …

‘‘WME’s fully managed service is perfect for us as a Council, and the contract support we receive under this offering is outstanding. Knowing each and every invoice is validated prior to us being invoiced provides assurance that we are only paying for the energy we use; this allows us to focus more time on energy efficiency measures and renewable energy projects’’
Cheshire East Council, 2019.

If you are interested in speaking to WME about our range of services, we would welcome an informal introductory meeting to discuss your requirements.

We will be exhibiting at the Public Sector FM Event in Coventry on 12th November, or you can contact our Business Development Manager, Gavin Owen; 0333 101 4425
