When people think about renewables, they think of generation such as solar panels and wind turbines. Just as important, but rarely discussed, are the challenges of getting energy supply to end-users with the customized contractual terms they require---not merely in the one-size-fits-all model that utilities offer. The future of energy retailing is centered on the ability to deliver energy supply customized to the requirements of each consumer—from the details of renewables supply, to demand reduction technologies and even basic contract structures. Delivering energy supply -- better, faster, and more efficiently -- is the mission of CLN Energy.
