Energy retail

Placing the customer at the heart of the transition to net zero. With digital and sustainability at the core, we help energy retailers innovate at scale.

Taking charge and leading the change

The energy retail space is embracing change. Diminishing commodity returns, advancing technology, and a flood of new market formulas mean there is abundant opportunity for retailers to reinvent themselves as utilities+ energy service providers.

Whether it’s renewed focus on renewables, bundled services or stronger partnerships with infrastructure providers, it’s clear that retail providers who balance the needs of their customers today, and their expectations for tomorrow, will thrive.


Net zero for all

As we approach net zero, energy retailers are moving from backstage to take on a central role in the era of electricity. This shift means embracing change and weaving digital and sustainability into an organization’s DNA to reinvent the business, while forging new alliances and collaborating across industries to meet the changing demands of citizens, employees, investors and legislators.

As a leading provider of consulting, digital transformation and managed services, we empower our energy retail clients to create sustainable businesses capable of meeting those expectations. Together with our ecosystem of partners, our industry specialists help our clients to identify cost saving opportunities and securely shift operations while safely delivering sustainable, stable energy experiences. Across the value chain, we help Utilities to take charge of the energy transition and drive positive change for their business, society, and the planet.
