CONTROL ENERGY COSTS – LAUNCHES FORENSIC COST RECOVERY SERVICE FOR BCCC MEMBERS
Control Energy Costs has been in the energy procurement business since 1981 and is proud to be the commercial energy partner of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce and has been able to provide a valuable service to numerous members. But procurement is not all they do …
What is Forensic Cost Recovery?
Forensic Cost Recovery is an industry-leading audit service specifically designed to interrogate the complex energy market across electricity, gas and water retrospectively, going back up to six years.
The service is based on the knowledge that not all energy bills will be correct; you should not be paying for energy you haven’t used.
The approach by Control Energy Costs is to forensically interrogate, challenge and recover monies where overpayments have been identified.
A dedicated team of specialists
Control Energy Costs Forensic Cost Recovery service provides businesses with “peace of mind” philosophy, supported by a dedicated, experienced team of energy analysts and account managers on hand to provide progress updates, analysis and reporting.
The software used to identify both visible and non-visible billing errors, as well as inaccuracies and trends, is developed in house. This software can be adapted to meet the ever-changing demands of the volatile energy market, giving Control Energy Costs a distinct advantage over its competitors.
Where errors are identified, Control Energy Costs will work on your behalf with suppliers to secure refunds or credits, ensuring a minimal impact to your business, leaving you to get on and do what you do best.
Recovering money owed
Control Energy Costs has successfully recovered monies for a wide range of manufacturing clients across multiple manufacturing sectors and processes. They have a track record and commitment to creating relationships built on trust, transparency and professionalism.
“We’re delighted to launch this service to members of the Chamber. It can benefit not just existing customers but those who might just want peace of mind that their business has only paid for the energy they have used. We will only be remunerated where we recover overpayments, so businesses have nothing to lose and the potential to recoup money that is owed to them."
