This report provides a strategic framework to help energy services firms clarify their go-to-market strategy and identify the critical capabilities required to succeed in the energy services market. It builds on our strategy assessment tool, the ‘Energy Services Radar’, which provides energy services executives a way to measure expertise within the context of energy domains, such as retail stores, manufacturing plants, data centres and distribution centres. The report makes the argument that the capabilities required for success must be developed from the characteristics of customer facilities. The analysis finds that simple and low energy intensity energy domains drive the need for low-cost energy management technologies and delivery models to make the economic case work. More complex energy domains have greater requirements for more specialist and customizable solutions. Leading providers will bring critical capabilities together with the right go-to-market approach to ensure the economic model works for themselves and their end customer.
