Transparency Report 2018: Openness and Transparency in Utilities

Buyer beware: protect your business, its assets and your customers by working with the right consulting partner.

Consultus is advising businesses to clarify key points when choosing an energy supply and management partner.

With many cases of abuse reported each year in the utility broker sector, we believe that buyers need to be fully aware of the total fee being paid from a utility provider to the consultancy or broker. We recommend that you assess all offers that you receive from potential suppliers on a level basis.

With the mandatory Code of Practice now shelved, Third Party Intermediaries are not subject to direct sectoral regulation in the same way as utility suppliers. We are therefore advising our business users to be aware of poor practices that could mean they end up paying more than they should for electricity, gas, and water, or be locked-in to unfavourable terms for a long time.
