White label retail platform
Energy retail is changing. As NZ fuel retailer Z's recent investment in electricity retailer Flick shows, companies crossing retail and energy are adapting to new technology and consumer demands for more environmentally-friendly or value driven options.

Your Competitive Advantage
The key driver to when people choose a new electricity retailer is major life events (i.e. moving house, renovations, retirement, buying an electric vehicle or solar PV). It’s high street retailers, banks and other distributors that are with consumers when they make those choices and are in the Right Place and Right Time to help consumer make a better electricity decision.
Being in touch with your customers electricity journey - a function of what they are doing each day and their personal objectives or values - provides an exceptional opportunity for engagement and cross sell. Imagine a supermarket that can promote the ingredients for meals during a week based on the discounts from energy savings by helping a consumer avoid a peak by using a slow cooker that day for a curry! Or the opportunity for another high street retailer to sell an appliance, insulation or IOT connected product based on the energy discounts a consumer can earn (and from energy insights of that consumer).
