Customer Lifetime value in retail energy markets
“This article explains how Energy retailers can embrace their focus on Customer Lifetime Value (CLTV) and improve the sophistication of their CLTV calculation.”

The energy transition brings in a range of exciting opportunities, but also new competitors from technology, finance, automotive and telecoms - all keen for a share of the client base.

This means focusing on customers who bring high lifetime value, through greater loyalty and a willingness to purchase additional products and services.
