ENGIE, the leading energy and services Group, has signed its first energy white label contract with a local authority to supply householders across the north-west of England. In the new offer launching today, residents in the Cheshire West and Chester region will benefit from a new local energy platform called Qwest Energy. The new proposition sees ENGIE become the first private sector business to partner with a local authority to launch into the local energy company market for four years – after a series of council-only owned initiatives. Qwest Energy has been developed through Qwest Services; Cheshire West and Chester Council’s joint venture company, set up in 2015, to provide expertise in facilities management, customer services, workplace solutions and digital transformation across the region. Qwest Energy aims to help local residents save money on their energy bills, with a specific focus on reaching out to disengaged and vulnerable customers. For every new customer, Qwest Energy will provide a contribution to a Qwest Energy Community Fund which based on customer projections, could generate in excess of £600,000 over the next 5 years for use on local projects, including actions to reduce fuel poverty. The new platform will leverage ENGIE’s existing infrastructure, which is already serving over 75,000 home energy customers across the UK. All investment required for the set-up and on-going operation of the new initiative has been provided directly by ENGIE, ensuring the venture is financially risk free for both Cheshire West and Chester Council and local residents.
