Conquer Industry Challenges

From the difficulties of rate-making to addressing transmission and renewable energy mandates,
discover how you can confront issues with our industry-smart services.

Capital Improvement Projects (CIP)

When completing a CIP, you need to balance multiple information sources, departmental communications, and vendors, as well as your project approach. By providing initial, midpoint, and close-out audits to meet deadlines, our professionals can help you manage contracts and change orders so projects progress seamlessly.

Successfully manage your CIPs with our Financial Statement Audit and Performance Audit Services.

Protect Data and Assets

Energy companies and their management teams are frequent targets of cyberattacks, with opportunities for cybercriminals to infiltrate your system and cause costly breaches increasing. Testing your current systems can evaluate your safety levels and identify controls you need for further preventive measures.

Combat attacks on your business, assets, and data with our Cybersecurity Services.

Data-Driven Decision Making

Managing multiple data sources and reports can drain time and resources, but implementing a customized management insight platform can allow your team to leverage numerous data sets and track key performance indicators.

Storing data in one place enables automatic data curation, tailored access, and reduced human error. Transforming traditional processes into an automated and streamlined set of reports, dashboards, and analytic tools can help fully leverage your data.

Enhance your data analytics operations with our Business Intelligence, Visualization & Dashboard Services.

Generation Assets

The power generation mix continues to shift based on economic, political, and user demands, pressuring utilities to find new ways to source power efficiently. Learn to build dynamic teams and evaluate your power sources as you move through these transitions.

Evolve your sourcing operations with our Process & Control Audit Services.

Meet Tax Obligations

The expenses you can include in recovery rates, and how you record regulatory assets, are strictly monitored by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board. Reviewing these costs and determining how to follow government guidelines is crucial to make sure your business meets its accounting obligations.

Stay compliant and strategize to increase your recovery amounts with our State & Local Tax Services.
