Business supply and services

Cornwall Insight provides regular analysis and commentary on the fast-moving developments in the business supply and services market. The reports and analysis keep you abreast of key regulatory and policy changes as well as commercial developments and impacts.

Although there is significant opportunity for those operating in business supply, the pace of change in the energy market creates an inherent risk. Providing the option of an outsourced regulatory offering, our regulatory service offers timely and targeted updates to ensure you’re always up to date and aware of the changes that impact your business. Cornwall Insight’s team of experts break down the complexity, supporting your next business decision.

Our regulatory forums keep you up to date with developments and workstreams that will have material business impacts. The expert-led meetings offer an opportunity to discuss key regulatory issues with other businesses and engage with official parties; the forums are attended by a wide range of energy supply businesses.

With a high level of competition in the non-domestic supply market, tracking the various competitors’ activities is more important. Our strategic insight service provides regular analysis on key financial, operational and strategic metrics across all competitors. Our experts draw out the most important developments. Keep abreast of relevant company developments, tracking new entrants to incumbent players through regular commentary, data and reference material.

Understand how competitors position themselves to win, grow and sustain their businesses through specialism or diversification. The proposition continues to develop in the business market, with TPIs and suppliers increasingly working with customers to offer net zero solutions. Our services also support your understanding of how the proposition and relationships continue to adapt, providing a comprehensive overview of the changing dynamics of supply/services and TPI markets.
