Why the Reverse Auction Works for Governments

Historically local and state government agencies have relied on traditional RFP’s when it comes to procuring energy rates. An RFP is in reference to a “request for proposal” form and includes a multi-step manual process that includes creating the forms, multiple stages of review, and finally approving one supplier. This process can take anywhere from 1-6 months depending on a variety of factors.

More recently, there has been a shift in the market. Deregulated energy states have now allowed for the use of Reverse Auctions as a new form of energy procurement. Reverse auctions are an automated system that gathers the best local suppliers and rates to then provide the bidder with several customized proposals for them to choose from. With the energy markets rapid fluctuations in price, the reverse auction has allowed these deregulated states to ensure they are working with the best rates.

Our EMEX Reverse Auction is available to states and provinces with deregulated energy. Such as Texas, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  

The Reverse Auction will help you take control of your long-term energy expenses, giving you access to the lowest rates from local suppliers. All while  eliminating your need to distribute complicated RFPs

Reverse Auction VS Traditional RFP

EMEX’s Reverse Auction

Traditional RFP

  • The reverse auction can be completed within 5 – 10 minutes
  • The reverse auction is free of charge
  • You will receive higher transparency in the bidding process as you will receive a detailed summary and cost-effective analysis of potential suppliers
  •  On average reverse auctions help you save 18% to 40% as they are sourced from local suppliers
  • All supplier lists are automated to match your requirements


  • The average process time for an RFP is 1-6 months
  • There is a risk of alienating prospective bidders
  • From start to finish a traditional RFP is a multi-step process with steps including manually identifying and reviewing suppliers.
