The Pittsburgh Pirates

The Challenge
Like many sports teams, the Pittsburgh Pirates blends energy supply and team sponsorship into a single-source procurement transaction to maximize value for all parties involved. The strategy attracts several market participants to provide competitive bids, but oversight is needed to ensure proposed pricing accurately reflects futures market data. In 2010, the team engaged New World Energy Group to help deliver on that front.

Howard Hanna

The Challenge
After a massive expansion into several states, Howard Hanna – a leader in residential real estate – was confronting a number of energy management challenges with operations in three competitive markets: NYISO, MISO, and PJM. With more than 400 locations, the company lacked a centralized procurement strategy to aggregate load and shop without subsidizing. Bill pay and processing were also significant hurdles. There was minimal visibility into the rate they were paying per location, and frequent location adds and deletes were resulting in excessive liquidated damages and increasing costs.
