TEC

About Us

Collaborative Partners

In order to meet the requirements of all functions within Member institutions which impact energy use and expenditure, TEC receive support from many other sector groups and consortia. This is a reflection of how energy is managed in Member institutions, with involvement through estates and facilities, procurement, finance and environment and sustainability.

Some of these relationships are more formal. For example TEC was initially formed as part of an initiative by the Association of University Directors of Estates – AUDE to deliver collaborative energy procurement solutions. More recently TEC has taken up representation on the Board of Procurement England Ltd – PEL, signalling the contribution which energy spend in Higher Education Institutions in England makes to collaborative spend targets set in the Diamond report.

The other partnerships are perhaps less formal. They ensure that the TEC team have a deep understanding of the requirements of each and every function within our Member base and beyond.  By working with these groups we can develop aspects of our services which meet with their individual and varied requirements.
