A flexible contract with fixed shaping profile for cost control and budget certainty

With SSE Shaping, the cost of your energy usage profile shape is fixed for the duration of your contract. And with access to live market prices, you get more control and transparency of costs.

Why SSE Shaping?

  • Budget with confidence – your energy usage profile is fixed for your whole contract period.
  • Control costs – access to live market prices to take advantage of changing market conditions.
  • Transparent trading – we can fix your non-baseload energy so you can trade baseload-only power, the most transparent product on the wholesale market.

How can a flexible plan help my business?

Our fully flexible plans allow you to buy underlying wholesale baseload power monthly, quarterly or in seasonal increments, reducing the risk of a single purchase.

That means you can manage risk and take control of buying patterns with the flexibility to reflect a change in strategy or performance.

Track and monitor the energy market and transact energy in near real time with SSE Foresight our online energy trading portal – free for flexible plan customers. Or get real-time quotes to the live market through our over-the-counter traders.

Are you able to change how and when you consume or generate energy? Do you have energy storage facilities?

If so, you could access valuable new revenue streams with SSE Virtual Power Plant (VPP). VPP knits together various distributed energy resources to maximise the value of your energy assets.

Whether you want to provide ancillary services to National Grid, reduce costs by avoiding TRIADs, or actively participate in the wholesale electricity markets, VPP unlocks the full potential of your energy flexibility.

  1. All our renewable electricity is sourced from wind and hydro assets wholly or partly owned by SSE Renewables, our sister company in the SSE Group. With SSE renewable electricity, you’ll continue to get your electricity through the national grid as normal, and we’ll match your consumption to REGOs from the SSE Group’s generating assets.
