Gas and electricity networks provide the essential infrastructure that bring these services to the customer. As energy demands and patterns of supply change, networks are having to adapt rapidly creating some unique challenges but also opportunities for existing and new network owners and operators.
The regulatory frameworks which focus on customer service, outputs, total expenditure and reduced asset investment are also changing behaviours within these organisations.
Across Europe, networks are being expanded to connect new sources of supply, including long-distance gas pipelines and offshore electricity transmission grids.
At a local level, distribution networks are facing a changing landscape fuelled by greater demand for distributed energy production, electricity storage and new sources of demand. Distribution network operators are becoming increasingly active as system operators, balancing local supply and demand conditions.
We help our networks clients to deliver change across the landscape including:
Our multi-disciplinary team includes experts in energy networks business, systems operations, large transformational change, information technology and systems, field force excellence, business change management, commercial design, regulation, long-term scenario development and power systems analysis.
