Centrica to offer ‘one stop’ energy shop for business customers

Centrica’s Distributed Energy and Power business has launched a ‘one stop shop’ for non-domestic customers. It aims to offer a single cloud-based portal that will give businesses visibility and control of their energy estate, including proprietary products from Centrica and third party applications.

Under the name Centrica Business Solutions the new platform will allow customers to  interrogate data and control operations across their estate. It will also give users the ability to see what benefits the addition of new technologies and approaches could bring, using their own data to assess the opportunity and calculate return on investment.

Jorge Pikunic, managing director for Centrica Distributed Energy and Power, said: “Speaking to customers from a variety of sectors, it’s clear that operational excellence and cost management are a key area of focus. We also know that they are looking for ways to improve their resilience and opportunities for growth.

“Energy can play an important part in helping them to tackle these issues but we understand it can be challenging to know where to start. By giving customers access to our in-house expertise, developing technology that keeps things simple, and helping them to join the dots between their assets, we will iron out the complexity and help them gain competitive advantage.”
