Electricity & Fuel Procurement Advisory Services


Making Mills Add Up to Sense


Opportunities abound for large industrial, institutional, and commercial entities to reduce their energy supply costs and diversify their portfolios. The road to an optimal energy strategy oriented around economic and renewable energy objectives is paved with complex tradeoffs and hidden costs. LAI helps end users navigate the procurement path. The financial rewards associated with DR/EE and behind the meter combined heat and power (CHP) can be tenuous. For CHP projects, protection against fuel price volatility requires an in-depth knowledge of market dynamics and well-conceived risk management programs. LAI can evaluate the commercial terms and risks faced by commercial or industrial facilities contemplating rooftop solar installations and other behind-the-meter initiatives.

We design long-term procurement strategies that best fit client specific reliability, environmental and economic imperatives. Our consultants have the requisite expertise to define a practical strategy to achieve efficiencies in the competitive market. We bring to the decision-making process advanced power engineering expertise, detailed knowledge of the energy markets, as well as the transactional experience needed to blend physical and financial solutions to your energy procurement challenges.
