Chevy Chase, MD, 1/23/2015 – In celebration of our 25th year of management consulting experience, Davies Consulting LLC has announced plans to strengthen and integrate its offerings for electric and gas utilities.

The firm is well known for premier consulting services in utility emergency management, storm cost recovery, risk-informed rate case development, and asset strategy planning for electric and gas utilities. In 2015, Davies Consulting will enhance its approach to utility business challenges, with expanded offerings that address electric and gas utility risk, asset, and emergency management issues across commodities and business units.

“We help utilities integrate long-term business and regulatory strategy with day-to-day operational decision making,” explained Miki Deric, a Davies Consulting managing partner. “Our experienced team supports outside-the-box thinking to improve utility performance and – ultimately – sustain a healthy bottom line.”

Davies Consulting services support electric and gas utility:

  • Emergency Management – reviewing, planning, exercising to support leading practices before, during, and after emergencies;
  • Risk & Asset Management – providing guidance for utilities as they integrate risk, asset, and investment decision making across commodities and business units;
  • Regulatory Strategy – assisting utilities to communicate with regulators and other stakeholders about managing risks to protect the safety, reliability, and affordability of the energy supply; and
  • Business Strategy – supporting strategic and operational decision making that boosts system resilience, customer satisfaction, and financial performance.

The Davies Consulting team combines deep utility knowledge with proven analytics and business intelligence to bridge the gap between the C-suite and operations, supporting seamless vision and management strategy across commodities. “This is some of the most interesting work I’ve done in my career,” added Grant Davies, the firm’s founder. “It’s exciting to be working at the nexus of the utility industry’s evolution.
