Energy & Utilities
We work with a broad range of clients in water, waste and energy, supporting them across the value chain, from upstream/sourcing to distribution and customer service. Their strategic and transformation priorities are set in the context of energy transition, water scarcity, ambitious net zero objectives and the constant pressure to improve efficiency in order to drive customer value for money. Our work supports them in defining and implementing ambitious long term strategic goals, assessing new markets, renewables investment priorities, operational performance improvement, and organisational redesign.
