E&C’s philosophy

From its first moments, E&C has been conscious of its role in society, which is clear from our mission statement:

To make every large energy user on the planet contribute to the energy transition by bringing them the best strategies, systems & data, shoulder to shoulder, with the help of the newest technologies.

This mission statement is summarized in our baseline:

E&C: smarter energy for a better world

Throughout our existence, we have consciously worked on bringing into practice a set of values. These values are shared among E&C team members, creating a strong bond among us and ensuring a high degree of employee involvement in realizing the company’s goals.

These values encompass how we do business and how we relate to our clients. Some are also internal and relate to how we see ourselves as individuals within E&C:

What people are saying about E&C

“Together with E&C, we are gradually improving our maturity in Energy Procurement across Bombardier (Aerospace and Transportation). They support us in optimizing our energy procurement step by step. Having started with only one location, we are now collaborating in 8 countries in Europe and North America and there is more to look forward to.”

Özgür Oklap, Global Category Lead at Bombardier

“E&C succeeded in negotiating a contract without any volume requirements - an essential condition due to the volatile business we’re in. Their tendering, combined with their accurate follow-up of the energy markets, resulted in an average hedged electricity price that was 15% below that of last year.”

Ludo Heylen, Purchasing Manager at Lantmännen Unibake Benelux

“E&C realized that our passive approach to energy payments was costing us money. By analyzing our invoices and discussing with engineers, they found out that our capacitors were being set up on the wrong connection points. This realization saved us 60,000 euro per year.”

Client active in food manufacturing

“E&C created a tailor-made executive summary that combined all of our hedging and financial controlling activities. It gave us an overview of the portfolio situation for electricity, gas and injections, and provided a detailed breakdown of the cost per month for several of our sites. The file is updated each month to show the cost evolution and compare it with the previous year as well as with our internal targets. This makes following-up easy and and ensures effective decision-making.”

Joris Meerschaert, Purchase Manager at Unilin

“Pre-financial crisis, energy markets were soaring, increasing daily - and positions were purchased in panic at high prices. We recognized that no one can predict the behaviour of the markets - engaging E&C helped us develop a buying strategy and we gained control over our energy cost and risk exposure.”

Daniel Wade, Purchasing Manager at Federal Mogul

“Thanks to E&C, our P&L is no longer affected by unexpected energy budget increases like we saw in 2008”

Company active in tourism industry

“E&C has been a great partner in our effort to switch away from a decentralized, fragmented approach for Utilities to a Strategic Centralised approach for 10 mature markets. We now have full visibility in our consumption on the SharePoint and are able to make much more informative decisions for the purchases. Moreover we are able to efficiently plan ahead for years to come and achieve better budget stability.”
