Forward Thinking Energy Procurement
Founded in Blackpool in 2011, LGE is a market leader in energy risk management and procurement. We handle accounts at all stages, from the initial intelligence gathering and tendering, right through to energy management and cost recovery.
We pride ourselves on our commitment and passion to our clients — we just wouldn’t be able to sleep knowing we hadn’t negotiated the best possible prices for our customers!
Transparency, Accountability & Integrity
We know that the energy consultant market can seem crowded, but it’s easy to see why we’re a cut above the rest. A long, storied history in the industry, combined with a significant investment in traders, analysts and consultants means that we have the benefit of experience, personnel and the latest technology to make sure you’re getting the best service from your energy consultant.
Our core principles of transparency, accountability and integrity are more than just a strapline, they run through everything that we do. We’re well respected and well known within the industry, and we represent the energy interests of large FTSE businesses and SME organisations alike.
