What is your biggest success?

Our biggest success as an energy consulting company was our comprehensive energy efficiency project where we would install diesel generators. The client was facing rising energy costs and inefficiencies, which were impacting their profitability and environmental footprint. We started with an in-depth energy audit, identifying key areas where energy was being wasted. Our team then developed a customized energy efficiency plan that included upgrading to high-efficiency equipment, implementing advanced energy management systems, and optimizing their systems

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Our biggest hurdle as an energy consulting company was adapting to the rapid changes in energy regulations and market dynamics. A few years ago, several major regulatory shifts were introduced simultaneously, significantly impacting our clients' operations and the energy solutions we provided. This situation initially caused confusion and delays in several ongoing projects. Clients were unsure how to proceed, and we had to quickly interpret and incorporate the new regulations into our strategies. The uncertainty also led to hesitations in decision-making, affecting our project timelines and client relationships. To address this challenge, we took several decisive steps. First, we invested in ongoing professional development for our team, ensuring that everyone was up-to-date with the latest regulatory changes and industry best practices. We also enhanced our communication with clients, providing them with clear, timely updates and guidance on how to comply with the new regulations.
