Gas utilities are currently facing significant challenges with increased regulation, price volatility, cost pressures and new competition. Gas utilities must transform from a "rate collector" model to an "energy partner" that focuses on the satisfaction of the end customer. This transformation requires unprecedented focus on customer-facing technologies and improved customer service.

Gas utilities are facing a lot of the same issues that other utilities are struggling with:

  • High and volatile gas prices
  • Changing customer needs
  • Challenges Of building new infrastructure to meet population growth
  • Aging workforce
  • Aging infrastructure
  • Increasing environmental challenges
  • Limited research funding
  • Need for more efficient use of natural resources

DCG has deep expertise and experience supporting gas utilities meet operational, technical, regulatory and business challenges.
