About Delta-ee – Experts in New Energy

Delta-ee is a rapidly growing, dynamic and entrepreneurial research and consulting company.

We are positioned at the heart of the transformation of energy markets to a more distributed, customer centric, low carbon future, and we are increasingly recognised as the leading European provider of independent expertise in our marketplace.

Now with almost 40 staff from across the globe, Delta-ee has offices in Edinburgh (our main office) and Cambridge, and also has staff based in the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. Delta-ee prides itself on a friendly office culture that supports a strong focus on staff development. 

What we do

We help our clients, across Europe and beyond, succeed in the change in energy markets from ‘old’ to ‘new’ energy. Our focus is on the customer end of the value chain, primarily on electricity, gas, heat and associated services including connected homes, energy storage and flexibility. 

We analyse markets, understanding: how they behave today and why; how they will behave in the future; and what will be necessary to win in these markets. Our research focuses on the critical issues that affect these points. 

Our main client groups are utilities (vertically integrated, retailers, and network operators), product manufacturers and controls companies. We also work with policy makers, investors, and increasingly telecoms and insurance companies. We provide our clients with subscription-based research and bespoke consultancy.
