Energy Retail & Services
Society-wide decarbonization goals have driven swift changes in the generation mix, accelerated adoption of new asset classes, and resulted in an on-going assessment of investments and divestitures. Integration of digital tools throughout the energy market has not only enhanced grid connectivity and system performance but has also afforded customers powerful options in how they consume, source and manage energy. These complex market trends are shaping a new paradigm for utility planning, policy making and investors, and FTI Consulting's Power & Utilities group helps clients to explicitly evaluate resiliency, reliability and new ways to engage stakeholders. Our team of economists, engineers and C-suite executives — many with extensive experience running utilities — bring forth market-leading expertise to help navigate these challenges and capitalize on new opportunities.

We are laser-focused on improving efficiency and effectiveness, executing with a balanced approach between short-term benefits and long-term strategic goals. We deploy best practices tailored to the industry dynamics of each client, focusing on the specific challenges that face power and utility companies and the opportunities that drive performance.

The success of a restructuring, merger, acquisition, carve-out, spin-off or divestiture depends on how quickly management voids can be filled once the transaction is completed. The seasoned energy professionals with C-level experience at FTI Consulting are prepared to fill the void when client companies face leadership, financial or operational challenges. Our C-level executives serve in the roles of chief executive officer, chief operating officer, chief financial officer, chief restructuring officer, controller and treasurer.
