Customer intelligence that turns utilities into service providers



Elevator Pitch

BEN Energy is the leading provider of consumer analytics in the GSA energy market. Founded as an ETH Zurich spin-off, the company is headquartered in Zurich with a second office in Munich. Currently, BEN Energy works with 28 utilities in GSA including the largest retailers in those markets, e.g. RWE, municipal utility of Munich and Hannover in Germany, and ewz, EKZ, BKW and Repower in Switzerland.

Product

BEN Energy’s IT-based Energy Service Platform employs large quantities of data and enables utilities to predict and affect consumer behaviour – intelligently and precisely. Utilities can predict customers who are most likely to churn and identify those who are willing to buy higher-margin products (e.g. renewable power, smart home, photovoltaic) or participate in an energy audit. Furthermore, utilities can identify customers who should not be addressed at all.

BEN Energy sources its data from existing utility systems and fuses the data with its own proprietary consumer profiles as well as 3rd party socio-demographic information. BEN Energy is not a consultancy, but rather a software company that licenses its software – usually following an initial pilot phase. The sovereignty of all customer data and customer interfaces remains with the utility at all times.



Why we are ecofriendly

Our customer intelligence allows utilities to launch energy efficiency and conservation programs highly target. With this, we are able to increase the effectiveness of efficiency measure more than threefold.
