Energy Edge was founded in March 2009 by Brian Walker and Matt Hobson. Prior to that, they worked for Reliant Energy where they held leadership roles in the company’s commercial and industrial retail electricity business unit.
While there, they watched the deregulated retail energy markets become increasingly complicated and saw firsthand the challenges energy consumers were encountering while trying to manage their energy spend. They recognized an unmet need in the market for advisors who possessed a very technical understanding of the commodity markets. Energy Edge was formed to bring clients the expertise required to navigate volatile and complex energy markets.
Soon after the company’s inception, Matt and Brian were joined by several energy professionals from leading retail energy firms across the U.S. The addition of these team members has enabled Energy Edge to quickly develop a reputation as a leading electricity and natural gas advisory firm.
Since 2009 Energy Edge has expanded its footprint beyond Texas to offer services across North America, including Canada, as well as parts of Europe and Asia. The firm is currently working with clients in virtually all deregulated energy markets around the world, as well as behind numerous regulated utilities to provide best in class energy management and advisory services.
