Direct Energy Supports Development of Tomorrow’s Energy Markets

read | Share:

I am excited to be a part of this newly re-launched blog via Direct Energy Business. It’s a great source of information to help businesses make more educated decisions about their energy supply and use. I am going to be steering away from a typical Energy Management Today blog post, and briefly explaining who Direct Energy is and how the company fits into a greater global energy picture via our UK-based parent company, Centrica.

Direct Energy

Direct Energy is playing a large role by supporting the development of tomorrow’s energy markets today by being active in midstream, supply and trading, and downstream delivery of electricity and natural gas.

So, who is Direct Energy? Direct Energy is one of the largest providers of electricity, natural gas and related services operating in 10 Canadian provinces and 46 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia. With more than six million customer relationships, we cover every link in the energy chain: Direct Energy Business, Direct Energy Residential, Direct Energy Services and Direct Energy Supply & Trading. In the midst of a recovering economy, we are providing economic promise in the form of affordable, innovative energy services and products and North American jobs.

Part of a Global Picture

Direct Energy is wholly owned by Centrica, one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies with more than 34,000 employees worldwide. Our parent company, Centrica plc, is listed on the London Stock Exchange with a market cap of $25bn+ and is a Fortune Global 500® company with a reliable, investment-grade credit rating.

Centrica’s LNG announcement in March places us at the heart of a global shift where North American resources play a larger role in the energy supply market. This is a very exciting place to be. Unlike any other company, we’re in a position to help our customers manage the pricing and use of energy to their advantage. Really, our name says it all. We are all things Energy. And we are Direct in how we relate to those we serve.
