Care England calls for energy bulk tender participants

Care England is inviting care providers to join an exclusive bulk tender for 2023-24 gas and electricity renewals, in partnership with not-for-profit consultancy Box Power.

The aim will be to combine all participants’ energy volumes to maximise significant economies of scale, achieve better prices and minimise excessive risk premiums.

Adding more data will ensure that policy leaders have the most up to date information on the effect of energy costs on the care sector. To date, using Box Power data, Care England has shared energy consumption data built on a model of 55,000 care home beds in England.

Care England advises that energy options are identified and analysed appropriately ahead of the optimum February to April renewal window, to secure the best possible energy renewal contracts.

Care homes interested in taking part in the tender should send in expressions of interest, by 16 December, to participate in the energy tender expected which will be facilitated in January 2023. Any care provider (members/non-members) can qualify to participate and benefit from the bulk tender by choosing one of three options available:

  1. Join our Healthcare Flexible gas & electricity baskets to access wholesale prices and trading advice.
  2. Join our full Exclusive bulk tender process and be guided to the best supplier.
  3. For single Care Home operators, access to commission-free advice and pricing options.

To register your interest, visit the expressions of interest website and provide; contact information, bed/capacity details, the percentage of your Gas and Electricity due, and renewal dates. You will be contacted with the next steps.
