Utility Alliance has opened another office and set up an industrial and commercial division. The TPI can now provide energy services across the business-to-business sector.
Utility Alliance was set up in Hartlepool in February 2015, initially with six staff, serving the SME and mid-market.
Now, with around 250 staff employed from its Hartlepool headquarters in addition to another 120 in offices in Sheffield and Newcastle, the firm has opened a Preston office at Old Docks House specifically to target industrial and commercial markets with higher energy usage. It has created 12 new positions to run the operation.
Scott Parlett, sales director for the I&C Division, said: “Having shaken up the SME and mid-markets, we’ve spotted that the traditional front runners in the I&C market have all been bought, or merged into other organisations”. As a result, he suggested competitors’ “focus and abilities” may have “been turned elsewhere within the market”.
Parlett believes Utility Alliance’s I&C Division can “directly fill the gap in the market for a responsible, high quality, energy price risk-management process”.
Parlett claimed all his team have at least 10 years market experience across both public and private sectors, “providing knowledge in legislation such as OJEU compliant procurement, Section 20 dispensation, ERIC reporting, climate change agreements and ESOS”.
Additional services offered by the new department include a direct link to suppliers, technology which monitors energy usage as well as a range of energy services such as battery storage, voltage optimisation and electric vehicle charging.
