Bloomberg talks to ONZO
Bloomberg’s article on ‘Energy Tracking’ features an interview with ONZO’s CEO Spencer Rigler.
During the interview Spencer Rigler discusses how tracking consumer’s energy use can help utilities improve consumer engagement and the overall customer experience. “The UK market is competitive and it will become increasingly so, mirrored also in advanced energy retail markets in the US such as Texas,” he said. “The reality is utilities will start to feel the impact of churn on their business and rising importance of customer retention and its relationship to customer satisfaction.
However utilities will benefit from simply understanding their customers better, preferably on an individual and personalised basis. This paradigm has been seen in other industries, most notably in telecommunications where the rise of data insights was critical in addressing the customer relationship, this is an inevitable development for the Energy Retailers of the future.
Utilities need the tools to engage with their consumers in a much more effective way than just sending them a bill and a non-personalised way on how to improve their energy use.”

On March 3rd the ONZO team made their way to Phoenix to present at the Utility Analytics Summit.
The Utility Analytics Summit was established by Energy Central to help Utility businesses answer one of today’s big questions ‘Can analytics truly benefit my business?’
Now in its 4th year the summit has steadily become a major event, running leadership forums, multiple breakout sessions and networking opportunities for its audience; a diverse mix of senior management, project leads and utility innovation teams.
For ONZO the summit proved to be a particular success. Our presentation around how personalised insight of each consumer’s individual energy use could improve operations, marketing and consumer engagement proved to be a hot topic for most of the audience, resulting in a well-attended, interactive session.
Spencer Rigler ONZO’s CEO was delighted with the outcomes of the summit, adding ‘With customer engagement such a priority for utilities, it was great to demonstrate how we’ve helped clients develop a better relationship with their customers using data… We’re delighted with the feedback we’ve received.’
