Leading energy management company Kinect Energy has added 300 new clients and saved in excess of £2.3m on water refunds for businesses across the UK in the past 12 months.

It is one year since the firm formerly known as Orchard Energy was acquired by the global Kinect Energy Group in October 2017.

Since the acquisition, Kinect Energy in Elland has enhanced its services for existing clients and supported growth into new markets, including data management, supply management, forecasting and risk management, providing a one-stop-shop for all clients’ energy needs. It has also confirmed partnerships with three new energy suppliers, allowing the firm to secure even more competitive pricing for its SME and mid-market clients.

Kinect Energy Group offers five solutions, Kinect Procure®, Supply Management, Portfolio and Price Risk Management, Energy Data Management and Consultancy to business and public sector customers across the UK and the world.

Although part of a global company, the business still prides itself on its local knowledge enhanced by its new worldwide capabilities.

Kinect Energy Group managing director, Amar Hussain, said: “The last 12 months have been extremely exciting for the business and the growth we have experienced during this period shows how positive the acquisition has been.

“Despite being part of a global company, we still pride ourselves on our knowledge of the local markets. We can offer local expertise with global capabilities, which enhances our offering to both existing and new customers. We can find solutions to complex questions and help businesses of all shapes and sizes stay in control of their energy decisions.”

Kinect Energy Group president, Paul Vian, said: “The acquisition of the former Orchard Energy brand one year ago has helped us on our way to enhancing our offering to businesses and organisations, helping them transform their energy and chart the best course in today’s fast-moving world.

“The business, its personnel and their expertise have become tremendous assets as part of the wider Kinect portfolio.”
