ISELIN, NJ, Feb. 13, 2018 /CNW/ - Centrica plc has today launched its distributed energy and power proposition in North America under the new Centrica Business Solutions banner.
Centrica Business Solutions has been established to help customers harness the power of distributed energy across three key strategy areas – energy insight; energy optimization; and energy solutions, including combined heat and power (CHP), solar, battery storage and standby generators.
As part of this, Panoramic Power Energy Insights, ENER-G Combined Heat and Power, and Rudox Power Generation have been integrated into Centrica Business Solutions, and will work with Centrica's Direct Energy Business team to put customers in control of their energy.
"Energy powers businesses. But energy is changing rapidly. New technologies, from advanced data analytics to new ways of generating and storing power, are creating opportunities for businesses to make their energy work to achieve their business goals," said Jorge Pikunic, global Managing Director of Centrica Business Solutions. "Centrica Business Solutions help businesses capture these opportunities, turning their energy footprint into a source of competitive advantage. In partnership with our sister company Direct Energy Business, we offer an unrivaled portfolio of energy supply and distributed energy solutions."
