Practical Solutions Tailored for Utility Enterprises

At Clyde Ventures, we pride ourselves on being operational and industry experts as opposed to career consultants. Most of our team have held senior positions across the supply chain in Water, Energy, and Distribution, bringing unparalleled industry knowledge and insight to our clients. Our deep expertise within the complex regulatory landscape, market dynamics, and technological advancements shaping the UK utilities sector places us in a unique position to support our clients achieve their objectives. We provide tailored solutions that drive tangible results, aiding clients and the sector as a whole, tackling a host of challenges from regulatory compliance to sustainability initiatives and digital transformation.

Industry Pain Points

Reducing Operating Costs to Improve Retail Margin

Efficient operations are essential for maintaining competitiveness and profitability in the utility sector. By reducing operating costs, we can enhance our retail margin, ensuring sustainable growth while delivering value to our customers.

Optimising WACC Returns in Regulated Utilities

As a regulated utility, optimising Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) returns is crucial. It enables us to efficiently allocate capital, fund essential infrastructure projects, and maintain reliable service delivery—all while satisfying regulatory requirements and attracting investment.

Treating Customers Fairly and Managing Vulnerability

Customers with vulnerable characteristics and those who are transiently vulnerable have never required more support from their utility providers, due to a whole host of factors such as the cost of living and wholesale price crises. It is the challenge of suppliers to commit to servicing customers in a manner that allows for the identification of vulnerable customers, implements safeguarding to protect their interests, integrates accessibility features, and equips front-line staff with both the soft and technological tools needed to ensure transactions are respectful and promote empathy.

Improving Customer Service

Long wait times, substandard complaint handling, and convoluted processes have all been cited as contributing factors to erosion of consumer trust in the UK Utilities sector and triggered reform by the energy and water regulators aimed at elevating service standards. Investing in building a customer-centric culture will go a long way in regaining consumer trust in the industries while complying with regulatory standards and improving customer experience.


It is undeniable that the U.K. Utilities sector is in the grip of a debt-related crisis. Debt collection requires a balanced and customer-centric approach, improving collections activities in utilities involves innovative strategies to improve debt recovery while maintaining positive customer relationships by combining effective communication, technological solutions, and flexibility.

Decarbonisation and Sustainability

Addressing climate change and promoting sustainability are paramount. By investing in renewable energy sources and adopting sustainable practices, we mitigate environmental risks, comply with regulations, and enhance our reputation as responsible stewards of the environment.
