Leveraging this focus, the company has captured and integrated lessons learned from engagements across the industry for over a decade. Structure’s clients include both North American and international utilities and energy companies across the entire energy value chain—generation and energy production, transmission and commodity logistics, market and system operations, distribution, and retail supply.
