ECX Marketplace - Online Bidding Platform

ECX Marketplace is the latest online energy procurement platform developed by the pioneers of reverse auction technology. Its design compels suppliers to deliver low prices as they compete to outbid the competition for your business.

In conjunction with EnerConnex’s extensive network of energy suppliers spanning North America, more suppliers mean increased competition and, ultimately, lower bids.

Here’s how it works:

Our bidding platform effectively shortens the amount of time suppliers can hold their bids open to reduce the supplier risk premiums embedded in the price, which results in lower bids.

ECX Marketplace was developed with the capability to manage complex energy products and pricing structures. Comprehensive bid reports can be extracted from the platform instantaneously for evaluation.

Our Process puts you in control, allowing you to create, test and evaluate multiple pricing parameters.
Our Technology saves you time by giving you the ability to run multiple pricing options simultaneously and in real time.

Our Expertise provides you the market intel and support you need giving you the confidence to make the best purchasing decisions at the right times.
