Municipal Utilities


The energy industry is undergoing immense change, requiring utility managers to find the optimal balance between business-as-usual and forward thinking. Utilities struggle to meld “old” and “new” business models. This is exacerbated by human resource constraints that leave utilities short-staffed and unable to plan for the future.

Avant helps our clients avoid getting blindsided by changes in the industry. Our team of experts helps our clients leverage change and capitalize on opportunities to innovate. Avant works with municipal utilities to

  • Understand and adjust to dynamic, market-based systems
  • Evaluate moving from centralized, fossil fuel-based generation to distributed and renewable generation
  • Better serve a more educated and demanding customer

In addition to planning for the future, Avant understands the importance of efficiently executing day-to-day operations. We realize utility fundamentals keep rates competitive. We create value for our clients by helping them:

  • Better manage their assets
  • Understand and hedge risk
  • Minimize the complexity and cost of regulatory compliance
