About us:

Utilligence is a multi-disciplined, engineering consultancy, working with clients around the world to devise, design, develop, implement and maintain large scale energy projects for power networks.

Utilligence delivers net zero power solutions and connectivity that enables clean energy that goes beyond today’s best practice, to provide effective and renewable future-ready power networks. We also monitor our own supply chain and organisational processes to ensure we too are doing our part in the move towards a greener future.

Utilligence places a high value on the safety and quality of our projects, delivering clean energy solutions that not only meet, but exceed customer, industry and service assurance expectations, thanks to our team of highly skilled, expert engineers. We are passionate about quality engineering and collaborate with our customers to find safe, clean and profitable solutions to complex problems that deliver optimal return on investment and support our customers right through the project lifecycle, including ongoing operations and maintenance.

Who we are:

Founded in 2013, Utilligence harnesses some of the best engineering expertise in the industry. The company was founded to address the opportunities that existed in unlocking the potential of renewable power connectivity with our team of expert engineers who had experience of working in this field. Together, we have over 400 years of combined experience in delivering connectivity projects, and are a global leader in renewable energy connectivity. 

We are a multiskilled engineering-led consultancy that works with developers, DNOs and IDNOs in the UK, Ireland and beyond to devise, develop and implement large scale energy connectivity and deliver net zero deployments for private or publicly owned power networks.

Since our beginnings in 2013, we have continued to grow from a small consultancy to one of the major players in the development of net zero power. In 2016, we expanded our consultation services to encompass design and build services, continually growing our project size and growth, working on ICP and EPC projects across the UK and internationally.

In 2019, turnkey wind power company, Kintech Synergy Private Limited invested in our company to help further our growth and power our global reach on net zero projects. We also launched our specialist wind and solar O&M services this year. 

Since then, we have continued to grow and expand our operations globally. We have in excess of 50 staff worldwide, with an additional extensive supply chain of specialist partners, to support a wide range of projects. 

In 2022, we founded Palau Solar, to provide renewable energy to the island communities.

We are a multiskilled engineering-led consultancy that works with developers, DNOs and IDNOs in the UK, Ireland and beyond to devise, develop and implement large scale energy connectivity and deliver net zero deployments for private or publicly owned power networks.

Committed to environmental solutions

Not only do we deliver net zero power connectivity, but we also monitor our own supply chain and organisational processes to ensure we too are doing our part in the move towards a greener future. 

We constantly strive to reduce our own carbon footprint, from our fleet of electric vehicles, to our in-office carbon reduction and recycling processes. Our website is hosted on an environmentally-friendly server and we work with Advantage Utilities on our own journey to Net Zero and a climate-positive workforce.
