Providing devolved eyes and ears for the energy sector and utility companies.

Following COP26, the drive to net zero is now mainstreaming across all political discussions and decision-making.  Central to that are discussions on our future energy needs, means of production and the ways in which we propose to fuel transport and heat our homes and buildings in the decades to come.  Of similar importance are routes to market and to customer, whether that’s via cables, pipes or other infrastructure.

Monitoring for the energy and utilities sector requires a technical understanding of planning, infrastructure, consents and the role of national and local governments as well as scrutiny functions, regulators and consumer bodies.  In each of the devolved nations, we have specialist account managers working with high profile energy and utility brands across all of these issues and more, providing essential up-to-the-minute intelligence.

Whether you are a household name or a new entrant, we can put oomph into your devolved engagement and provide eyes and ears on the ground, even on days when your focus is elsewhere.

We can bring out energy team together on a single call and compile a devolved nations briefing each week, providing you everything in one place.  If you are required to update colleagues on the essential developments across the UK each week, let us do the drafting for you.
