About us

TEC are energy experts and procurement professionals. We are a Contracting Authority owned by our members. TEC deliver services in energy procurement, risk and cost management, data reporting on a not for profit basis.

We understand the requirements of our members and guide them into making an informed decision on their energy options taking into account their needs in managing energy consumption and carbon across their estate assets.

We primarily work in the HE and FE sector working with Universities, Colleges and Museum Groups, but also support the wider public sector.

We are not a TPI or broker but a recognised ‘Other Contracting Body’ meaning that other contracting bodies can utilise and access any of our OJEU compliant frameworks, fully compliant with EU and UK Procurement Regulations.

Our members have voting rights on both the governance and policy of TEC, and thus can fully trust in the transparency of the management and that policy decisions are taken with the benefit to the membership as a key priority.
