The deregulation of electricity and natural gas markets in Europe was a real shock and it will continue to have an impact in the coming decades. Access to energy sources, the security of energy supplies and the fight against climate change are other major challenges influencing energy markets.
Gas and electricity guidelines and the evolution of European regulation are accelerating market transformation. Participants in this sector, including incumbent and prospective licence operators, now have to adapt their economic models to rapidly changing new realities.
We have twenty partners and six hundred consultants currently specialising in utilities, particularly in utility-focused IT applications, all used to working for major players in the deregulated utilities markets.
We have developed considerable operation skills in sectors such as growth strategy in renewable energies and energy demand management.
Our teams have a global view on the utility market thanks to their relationships with the European leaders in energy, water and sanitation.
We have a good understanding of today’s issues thanks to annual benchmarks among leaders of the utility sectors and regular studies we produced on the latest trends, such as ‘A new challenge : Smart Energy ’ or ‘Climate change and the consumer: a family affair and a generation game’.
