Simply Energy finalist in EECA 2012 awards

The 2012 EECA awards are to be held on Wednesday night 23rd May at The Langham Hotel in Auckland and Simply Energy is delighted to be a finalist in the Innovation Award Category.

For the second consecutive EECA awards Simply Energy is again the only electricity retailer to be nominated as a finalist, the 2012 nomination backs up Simply Energy’s nomination from the 2010 EECA awards as a finalist in the Renewable Energy Category.

The EECA Awards celebrate organisations and individuals who have demonstrated excellence and innovation in energy efficiency or renewable energy. This year, nearly 90 entries were received. Collectively the entries will deliver energy savings, or generate energy, worth more than $60 million over the life of the projects.

Simply Energy has been nominated as a finalist for their innovative white label retail services. Simply Energy developed and is providing these white label retail systems and services to distributed renewable generation projects and assets. This has enhanced the return on these assets to commercially assist the development of new independent renewable energy projects.

Murray Dyer Commercial Director at Simply Energy comments that we first rolled this out two years ago as part of our management services for some small scale hydro generation projects. However this product has evolved and been packaged up as “white label retail service”. We are currently supporting 4 generation clients with these specific services that operate geothermal, hydro and landfill gas generation assets throughout New Zealand. We also have another half a dozen generation assets that we manage into the wholesale market.

Murray goes onto say that Simply Energy is able to provide our independent generation clients with bespoke solutions to retail their electricity to end consumers. Our solution provides all the systems, processes and resources to interface and comply with the complexities of the electricity wholesale market. This provides our clients with greater options and value for their energy encouraging greater investment in renewable generation which is an exciting space to be in.
