Powering Change for a Better Future
A decade ago, utilities were often compared to governments based on their slow pace of change and relatively staid cultures. It’s a new ball game today. New market actors have and will continue to enter this sector and are quickly becoming driving forces behind both technological and social change.
We work with utilities, energy efficiency organizations and others in the energy services sector to help them get clear on their strategic direction and unique value proposition. As important, we help leadership think through and then take action on needed organizational change as well as process improvement initiatives.
“I valued the insight Coraggio brought to each step of the process, helping us see issues in a different way. Especially in their diagnostic work identifying and analyzing unhelpful patterns and problems, they were amazingly accurate and insightful.︎”
— Phil Welker, CEO
Creating Long-Term Energy Savings Through Market Innovation
The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) brings together more than 100 utilities and energy conservation bodies from the Pacific Northwest. A key goal of NEEA is to guide a transformation of the region’s energy market toward ever increasing efficient and sustainable energy consumption. NEEA influences market transformation by leveraging strong regional partnerships and accelerating the adoption of energy efficient products and creating savings to end-users.
A Lean Journey Leads to Higher Efficiency While Maintaining Effectiveness
For decades, utilities operated in a competition-free environment under regulated monopolies. The landscape has changed—competitors have entered the marketplace. Coraggio was first hired to work with the PGE executive team to evaluate and refine its corporate strategy in response to this evolving marketplace. By 2010 several divisions were focusing on implementing various parts of the organization’s long-term direction.
