Flick switch up. Light goes on. Flick switch down. Light goes off. Flick switch up. Light goes on….and so it continues. This is how my four year old influences the energy market, completely unaware of the growing list of companies competing to charge me for the energy she is so eagerly consuming.
Since the 1980s, Governments throughout the world have embarked on the process of deregulating all- or part- of their energy networks in an effort to improve the quality and service of energy delivered to consumers, and provide transparency of power pricing. I’ve worked with customers that operate throughout the electricity supply chain – Generators, Distributors & Retailers – but none interest me more so than those termed “Gen-tailers”, that is, companies that both generate electricity and sell it to the consumer.
