Our History: Delivering for Clients

For more than 20 years, our expertise has enabled companies and the public sector to reduce utility costs and improve their operations: to access, use and benefit from essential services in smarter ways.

Every day, Consultus expertise helps organisations to reduce utility demand, save money, comply with environmental legislation and work more profitably.

Consultus dates back to 1993, when an energy buyers club was created within a UK consulting business in response to the privatisation of utility markets. This identified new opportunities for more competitive pricing alongside something unique: unbiased independent advice and a genuinely transparent approach.

The Energy Brokers emerged as one of the first dedicated third-party intermediaries in this market space. Its client portfolio grew rapidly based on market demand, in-house expertise and intellectual property, proven negotiating skills, consulting expertise – and its ethical approach.
