Yes – We have a number of different cost options ranging from fixed fees to completely performance based fees for our services. We are prepared to build an option to suit the needs of our clients.
Yes – just like energy, environmental certificates trade on public exchanges and their price is a function of the balance between demand and supply. This means that when you purchase the certificates (or when the retailer purchases them on your behalf) is a major influencer of price.
No – M&C is an independent consultancy firm and does not receive payments from retailers for any services that we provide to our clients.
Yes – Areas where savings could be achieved include:
Yes. M&C Energy Group has designed and developed its own suite of sophisticated and powerful IT systems, enabling our analysts to conduct retrospective analysis and cost auditing exercises. This analysis identifies discrepancies quickly and allows us to pursue refund opportunities without delay. We have a very thorough approach to all billing activity - our team physically checks invoices and supplier downloads for errors or discrepancies, allowing us to actively pursue overcharges, which can be backdated on behalf of our customers.
We really are different from the other companies, in a range of ways which you'll find beneficial. We are an independent consultancy firm, so we are not influenced by suppliers. By constantly monitoring the world markets, our global data analysis ensures that we only work with the suppliers who give us the best prices, which we can pass onto our clients.
M&C is one of only a few consultancy groups specialising in the energy industry that holds an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL), issued by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission. This licence enables us to provide advice on financial products.
These are just a few of the ways that we differ from our competitors, for a more comprehensive list of our differences, look at our Why Choose Us page.
Yes. M&C Energy Group can manage this type of contract in the relevant markets. Flexible contracts allow customers to be responsive to market opportunities and reduce the risk of contracting at market peaks – focusing your purchasing on the underlying 'negotiable' energy components and providing complete price transparency.

Contact us today to discuss how access to better information can help your business.
Our national teams within Europe, Asia and America are at the core of our organisation and their innate understanding of local issues is invaluable. This localised knowledge, combined with our global network of data collection and monitoring systems is used by all of our analytical staff to interpret data and make informed decisions on behalf of clients.
So, the answer is: Yes - no problem.
