US fuel giant World Fuel Supplies has brought together energy management and procurement firms Bergen Energi and The Utilities Exchange under a new global brand called Kinect Energy.
The firm acquired Bergen last year and fellow third party intermediary The Utilities Exchange in July this year. US consultancies U.S. Energy, KTM and Beachfront Energy have also been rolled into the Kinect brand.
Announcing the move, Kinect touted access to a worldwide energy network, as well as comprehensive procurement and risk management services to reduce energy spend and increase predictability as core customer propositions. It also promoted end-to-end sustainability services to meet carbon footprint goals.
“Kinect Energy Group reflects our commitment to sustainable energy solutions,” said Michael Crosby, EVP of the Global Land segment at World Fuel Services Corporation. “We are proud to provide energy management expertise to diverse organisations and assist in managing complex energy challenges on a local and global scale.”
“We are committed to solving energy challenges,” said Todd Overgard, SVP of Kinect Energy Group. “Kinect Energy Group allows us to deliver on our customers’ energy vision for their operations.”
