The Opportunity 
Almost 15 years ago energy deregulation was introduced in the U.S. With energy deregulation, businesses are free to choose the companies who will supply their electricity and natural gas. The industry is comprised of firms that supply energy, companies that deliver energy, and intermediaries (advisors, consultants, brokers) who advise businesses on their energy purchasing decisions. The energy business is an exciting and dynamic global commodity marketplace. Similar to the stock market, prices can be extremely volatile with factors like energy production, supply, the world’s economies, geopolitics and the weather driving the market. With literally millions of commercial and industrial companies using electricity and natural gas every day, the opportunity to advise them and assist them on their energy purchases is enormous.
