Trane Energy Supply Management
Natural gas and electricity management
Our energy experts will help you obtain the lowest price and best contract terms for your natural gas and electricity needs.
Trane Energy Choice™
In deregulated states we can help you choose the electricity and natural gas supplier with the most advantageous prices and terms.

Making the most of the available options
We can help you decide what suits your business best from an array of choices, including renewable energy certificates (REC), power purchase agreements (PPA) and virtual power purchase agreements (VPPA). Once we’ve settled on an approach together, Trane will put it into play and make sure you receive the full rewards and recognition by following through on complex reporting requirements.
Renewable energy procurement
There are many options for renewable energy today, and the choices continue to grow. We’ll help you understand what’s available and weigh the potential risks and rewards of each. Our experts know the renewable energy market in North America, and we’ll help you navigate your local terrain while meeting your sustainability goals, such as LEED® or net zero certification, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Innovative procurement tools
Trane can help you use today’s innovative renewable energy procurement tools, such as power purchase agreements (PPA) for direct delivery of renewable energy, and virtual power purchase agreements (VPPA), for environmental reporting and financial benefits that help offset energy costs. We’ll help you select the renewable energy provider offering the most value to you.
Why VPPAs can be a great choice
Renewable energy sources are playing a bigger role every day. Virtual Power Purchase Agreements (VPPA) are a great way for businesses to purchase long-term renewable energy at attractive market rates. We know the advantages firsthand: When the Ingersoll Rand Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability worked with the Trane team to enter a VPPA, we replaced 32% of the company’s energy use in the U.S. with green energy practically overnight.
