Defining the Addressable Market for Utility Acquisition


Mapping a US$730 billion utility market to critical infrastructure company’s ten-state footprint

The Challenge

The increasing convergence of water, power, and gas prompted our client to explore potential short and long-term opportunities for utility acquisition. Critical to the market analysis was the identification of utilities that met a target profile, one in which financial and operational stress would elevate the potential for divestment- municipal or private. 

Bluefield’s team prioritized the markets by geography (e.g. state, county), number of connections, and dollar value to support strategic planning.

Bluefield Engagement

The Bluefield team leveraged its ongoing data and analysis of utility acquisitions, utility violations, and utility funding requests for water and wastewater across the U.S. utility landscape.

Accelerating Outcomes

The custom engagement supported the strategic planning committee’s initiatives to make more confident recommendations to the corporate board. Bluefield’s analysis also enhanced the clients understanding of the key investor owned utilities and their strategic positions in water.
