WASHINGTON – May 18, 2021 – Guidehouse, a leading global provider of consulting services to the public and commercial markets, today announced it has entered into a strategic alliance with Copperleaf®, a global leader in decision analytics solutions, to support utility clients with critical infrastructure investment decisions as the energy transition intensifies.
As utilities and energy companies embark on new programs and business ventures, Guidehouse helps to transform their enterprise capital management capabilities by combining business planning, innovative transformation strategies, and integrated asset management solutions for an investment planning and portfolio optimization aimed at increasing resiliency, decarbonization, affordability, and shareholder value.
The new alliance combines Guidehouse’s utility industry expertise with Copperleaf’s Asset Investment Planning and Management (AIPM) technology to offer data-driven assessments that enable an even more dynamic and transparent capital investment lifecycle for energy providers.
“Utilities are under pressure to transform their energy systems to be more resilient and sustainable, while providing better customer service and working within strict budgets,” says Michelle Fay, partner in Guidehouse’s global Energy, Sustainability, and Infrastructure segment. “As assets age and investment decisions become more complex, we are pleased to join forces with Copperleaf to help our clients navigate a path forward with even more confidence.”
The Copperleaf Decision Analytics Solution leverages operational, financial, and asset data to help utilities make investment decisions that deliver the highest business value. The software is augmented by Guidehouse’s experience as a trusted advisor to utilities that have engaged Guidehouse for support as the industry rapidly transitions to one that requires a cleaner fuel supply, increased reliability, improved resilience, and more control over energy costs for customers.
“By working with Guidehouse, we are further empowering utilities to make investment decisions that deliver the highest business value, while meeting the mounting issues facing asset-intensive organizations, including pressures to optimize asset investment decisions, improve operational excellence, drive efficiencies, and support environmental sustainability,” says Miranda Alldritt, President, Americas at Copperleaf. “We look forward to helping model the innovative and transformative strategies to support the energy transition and enable our infrastructure to be more resilient, reliable, and safe.”
