The Utilities sector in the UK is facing a period of tremendous change. In electricity, the push towards a lower carbon generation system balancing the need to keep consumer prices low is posing challenges for incumbents. In water, regulatory pressures and the move towards retail competition is creating both challenges and opportunities for the UK’s water companies. Credo has been involved in not only helping utilities navigate these challenges, but working to help the supply chain transform, embrace technology, find smarter solutions and develop new propositions to ensure they can best meet the needs of the utilities and the end consumers.

Credo is a leading consultancy to the utility market, providing a mix of strategic, transaction, organisational design and performance improvement advisory services. Areas of expertise include:

• Utilities software
• Renewable energy investment
• Boiler services
• Network engineering, construction and maintenance
• Energy management

• Distributed and off-grid energy and CHP
• Retail energy market analysis
• Retail water market analysis
• Capex project assessment
• Utility and supply chain contracting models

We have supported major utilities and their suppliers adjusting to the challenges of the landscape helping take strategic new propositions to market, review operational costs, optimise maintenance and create investment cases for new major capex projects.

We have also supported M&A transactions for both financial sponsors and industry clients on both the buy side and sell side across the utilities supply chain including projects in commercial and operational due diligence.
