Our streamlined contracting and onboarding processes support custom pricing and a rapid turnaround, while our integrated trading and risk management systems provide competitive access to the wholesale market.

 

Building lasting relationships

The strength of the relationships we build with our channel partners is reflected in our net promoter score (NPS); our rating of +59 places SmartestEnergy firmly in the ‘great’ category, equivalent to the world’s best companies, not just best energy companies.

We take time to understand your business and to support you with tailored products and services designed to meet your needs.

We believe we are here to drive your success; our whole team is dedicated to supporting our partners and building relationships that make a difference. Our partners can ask to talk to any of our team, anytime – whether our senior management, our pricing teams, our trading desk or beyond.

Reasons to believe:

SmartestEnergy is your financially sound, creditworthy partner, today and for the future. Through our parent, the Marubeni Corporation of Japan, we have an investment grade credit rating with both S&P (BBB) and Moody’s (Baa2).

Our financial strength underpins our trading desk, providing access to multiple wholesale counterparties for competitive commodity costs and innovative route to market services. And the strength of our balance sheet means we can invest in high quality technology and systems that differentiate our service.

SmartestEnergy doesn’t own assets or generate energy, which means we’re free to act independently and seize every opportunity.

This enables us to deliver the innovative solutions and competitive deals and trades that benefit our Channel Partners and customers.

Energy is a great business, but it can be challenging too. We help you deliver for your customers with competitive pricing, regulatory guidance and sustainability insight, so you can help them concentrate on what they do best.

In the UK. SmartestEnergy was awarded Energy Supplier of the Year in 2012 and 2018.

In the US, SmartestEnergy has delivered on that same customer focus – earning runner-up in the Energy Marketing Conference 2020 ‘Retail Energy Provider of the Year’ list and delivering a Net Promoter Score of +59, better than most global companies in any sector, not just energy.
