What's clear is that the focus of has now completely shifted from being just about energy prices and carbon to managing total energy costs and risks.
Companies are now juggling how best to buy, how to reduce demand and - if they can - control their own supply through on-site generation.
Feeding into this is the need to better understand consumption through regular data monitoring and analysis which enables companies to identify where and how to most effectively reduce demand.
