Creating a sustainable future with insight and innovation

The utilities industry is undergoing the biggest transformation in over a century. Market reform, increased regulation, aging infrastructure and the need to address decarbonisation are all pressing challenges. Customers are expecting higher and higher levels of service – and it's easier than ever before to go elsewhere to get that.

We’re helping the UK government drive energy efficiency, fair competition and improved tariffs for consumers, by designing technology and operations to unify the smart meter network in the UK.

We’re helping our clients find new ways to grow and improve in a fast-changing industry. Our customer service knowhow is allowing them to create first-class consumer experiences, countering competition from start-up operators.

Our forward-thinking infrastructure solutions mean companies can embrace new technologies and renewable sources of energy, allowing them to meet government demands for decarbonisation. While our analytics tools are increasing efficiency and saving money, creating better preventive maintenance procedures and reducing leakage for water companies.
