Energy Assets Group is combining its metering and related services into a unified brand to broaden the reach of its rapidly growing multi-utility offer to Britain’s industrial and commercial (I&C) business sector.
From July 19, 2016, the Group’s electricity metering, data collection and aggregator business, Bglobal Metering (BgM), will trade as Energy Assets, thereby bringing all gas, power and water services under a single brand.
This harmonised approach will enhance customer access to Energy Assets’ end-to-end portfolio of multi-utility products and services, including advanced metering, AMR, data analytics and control systems, which are key to meeting the increasingly sophisticated energy requirements and carbon commitments of businesses and public sector organisations. It follows on from the recent launch of Energy Assets Utilities – a leading supplier of multi-utility network services covering gas, electricity and water.
The Group is Britain’s largest independent provider of I&C gas metering services, by number of assets owned and managed, and its presence in the I&C electricity space has grown significantly since the acquisition of BgM in 2014.
David Sing, Managing Director of Energy Assets, said:
“Since the acquisition of BgM, we have extended our in-house service delivery resources and capability, launched a multi-utility energy management portal – WebAnalyser - for our customers, extended our offer into big data analytics with AMR DNA and introduced control systems capable of switching electrical loads remotely and on-demand.
“Now the time is right to bring all of our energy-related products and services together under the Energy Assets name to make it as easy as possible for our customers to gain the support they need, irrespective of whether their needs are for services in gas, electricity, water or multi-utility. This rebranding process utilises the strength of the Energy Assets name and brings clarity to service provision in every area of operation.”
The change comes at a time when energy managers are increasingly focused on optimising the data delivered by advanced metering systems to drive efficiency.
“We are moving from collecting and analysing consumption data as a means of benchmarking performance into an era increasingly focused on identifying and eradicating energy waste and applying dynamic load control.
“By simplifying access to our growing portfolio of innovative products and services, we aim to help energy managers develop and implement strategies that ultimately reduce energy usage, save money and meet their carbon reduction commitments.”
