Utilities' financial / operational performance

The right service at the right cost

In the electricity and water sectors, cost cutting is not always the right path to cost of service optimization.

Our Approach

  • We analyze the past operational and financial performance of the operator

  • We benchmark with the performance of similar operators, while accounting for the specificities of each company in the benchmark

  • We interview professionals from all departments in the company : planning, bill collection, financial officers, technical staff, etc.

The Outcome

  • We identify future development options : developing new assets, regional integration, enhancing day to day operation, developing smart systems, etc.

  • We code these into a combined financial-operational model, considering both their costs and their benefits

  • The most impactful measures are discussed with the operator and an implementation pathway is co-constructed

Tariff Design

Tariffs designed to meet the challenges of the economy

Tariffs may be designed to 

  • Face higher investment needs or cash management issues in lower investment phases of the cycle.

  • Give the right incentives to operators to enhance quality of service and develop projects in line with the sector's policies.

  • Incentivize energy efficiency or limit peak power demand.

  • Enhance access to water and electricity for lower income households.

  • Enable the development of job creating industries.

When assisting you in designing the right tariffs to meet your challenges, we leverage

  • regulatory benchmarks and stakeholder consultations

  • financial theory (CAPM model) and economic theory

  • financial modelling and economic forecasts

Contracting of public services

Contracting public service provision to the private sector is a tricky exercice :

  • How to select the right contract for the service : Concessions, management contracts or operation and maintenance ?

  • How to define the perimeter of the private sector participation ?

We advise you on

  • risk allocation considering technical specificities of the service, investment needs, market appetite and contracting capacities.

  • the definition of service fees and associated incentives.

  • quality indicators considering existing and planned metering systems.

  • data reporting

  • monitoring and evaluation frameworks.
