Gas & Electricity Procurement

How Does A Reverse Auction Work?

As part of SAV-ON Cost Reduction Network, we have partnered with EMEX®. The EMEX® Reverse Auction is an innovative platform that has created a strategic shift in how energy is bought and sold throughout the country. EMEX’s real-time competitive bidding technology has become a game-changer because of its ability to uncover the lowest rates for business and government entities, and is considered a best practice for energy procurement. By inviting the most competitive energy suppliers in the market to bid in a reverse auction hosted exclusively for your company, all participants are able to bid and counter-bid in the transparent, real-time platform that goes on until the lowest rates in the market are uncovered. The process ensures fair and transparent competition, which benefits suppliers who want to win more business and challenges the entire market to offer competitive rates.

“I was skeptical about Energy Market Exchange. But, because my business energy costs were several hundred thousand dollars a year, the opportunity to save 20-30% was too significant to ignore. The auction process was so simple. Within 5 minutes, I saw energy companies competing for my business by offering significant discounts. I was able to watch the auction process, see potential savings and then decide if I wanted to commit. Our auction offered a 28% savings over current energy costs. I decided to commit to a time period, and my business began saving 28% annually on our energy bill-no gimmicks, just pure savings. I highly recommend Energy Market Exchange.”
