The Energy Consortium (TEC) provides energy solutions to public sector organisations and is now regarded as one of the country’s leading proponents and providers of collaborative energy procurement, particularly to universities and colleges.
It is a full member of the Cabinet Office Collaborative Procurement programme, as well as other purchasing bodies and is committed to sharing best practice and cost saving advice in energy to a broad spectrum of public sector organisations.
