Consultus Group celebrates 25 years of leadership in energy and utilities

On 24th May 2019, the Consultus International Group celebrated 25 years of providing clients with industry-leading approaches to buying and the management of their essential business utilities.

It has only been possible to reach this milestone due to organizations like yours, so thank you for all your support over the time we have worked together so far. We are very proud of a customer retention rate of more than 96%: over half our client relationships reach back longer than 10 years.

Beginning as an “Energy buyers club” for companies in and around Leicestershire, we’ve grown into a world-class consulting partner with a truly global reach.

Our primary objective, from our beginnings 25 years ago and now remains the same: deliver more for our clients. The last few years have seen some unprecedented changes in the markets we serve; in our client’s requirements and therefore in the evolution of our own business.

An important driver behind our growth has been an unswerving commitment to transparency: our open book policy. Clients trust our ethical approach and industry suppliers know we play a straight game. In 2018, market analysts Cornwall Insight named Consultus as the industry’s only UK 100% transparent consultancy.

Every day, our teams are helping you to reduce the costs you face, to optimize your operations, comply with legislation and to work more profitably.

Our Silver jubilee comes at a time when our international expansion continues: we operate from eight locations across Europe, the Americas, Asia Pacific and are planning additional offices in Japan and Australia. In fact, we’ve been operating across Europe since 2003. Group companies today include Consultus International UK (formerly The Energy Brokers), Consultus (PEMXQ), Consultus Worldwide, Consultus Water, and the Assured Energy subsidiary: which offers smarter and cost reducing measures for affinity groups and industry partners to work.

Assured Energy is another case in point of our continuing innovation in helping our clients to insulate their operations from market volatility, price hikes and unnecessary risk. That innovation continues with our market-leading Energy Resilience programme focused on Alternative Energy Generation and the opportunities presented by the private wire revolution, which can include up to 25% annual savings.

Indeed, over the last 20 years, our innovative risk and buying strategies have meant that on behalf of our clients we have outperformed the market by up to 35%.

Consultus manage a £1 billion combined client portfolio, providing clients with an annual 40% savings on supplier management fees and 52% annual savings on Meter Operator (MOP) contracts. We have delivered a £2 million saving to flexible energy clients and identified more than £10m in savings for clients through our historic bill validation service. We are the second highest switcher of water supplies in the industry.

Here at Consultus the work never stops. We continue to invest heavily in R&D, our systems and our people: all focused on delivering more for clients. Here’s to the next quarter-century.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you again for your continued support and ask that you do not hesitate to contact me directly if you have any queries or issues.

Best regards,

David Peake
