Wagner College Case Study
Reverse Auctions for Energy Procurement: 15 Minutes to Big Savings



Wagner College in New York City used E&I Reverse Auctions to cut almost $200,000 off their annual budget for gas and electricity. That’s $200,000 in real, tangible cost savings that can be repurposed for greater good on campus. The auction was conducted in approximately 15 minutes and the entire process took less than eight hours. All in a day’s work, as the saying goes…

Name/Title: Kevin Maloney, Director, Strategic Sourcing and PantherExpress System Solutions

Role model: My father

Favorite quote: “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” John Wooden

When I’m not at work you can find me: Attending Pittsburgh Pirate and Steeler games, family functions and helping to watch my grandchildren.

Something most people don’t know about me: I cook most every meal in our house.

I decided to serve on E&I’s Board because I wanted to: Stay connected to the E&I operations.

The most rewarding aspect of serving as a Board member has been: Participation in the NAEP Florida Regional Meeting on behalf of E&I.

Once I became an E&I Board member I was surprised to learn that: So far I have not been surprised by anything!

My vision for E&I: To achieve a 90% level of members citing E&I as their primary outside contract source.

Three words I would use to describe the Cooperative: Energetic, collaborative & friendly.

Additional comments/thoughts/words of wisdom: A learned lesson from life, “Don’t sweat the small stuff.”

2015 By the Numbers – A Great Year for E&I




2015 was an amazing year for the Cooperative, and we’re so proud of our achievements. Here’s a quick glance at a few notable successes:

2015 by the Numbers


  • Member purchases exceeded $2.5 billion – nearly $200 million over last year

  • Our Board of Directors voted to return approximately $3.5 million to the membership in the form of patronage returns

  • Members realized over $200 million in savings by utilizing E&I contracts

  • Members recaptured and redeployed thousands of RFP resource hours

  • Membership increased to over 3,800

Throughout the year, our consulting division focused on narrowing our services in an effort to hone in on our core competency. Completed or ongoing client engagements include Drexel University, Emory University, and the University of Connecticut, among others. We’re also enjoying a great new partnership with Rosslyn Analytics, which is helping us engage clients with a compelling spend analytics package.

As always, we remain extraordinarily thankful to our members for your support. None of our success would be possible without you. We’re looking forward to working with you throughout 2016 to accomplish more great things.
