About us:

GECO Global is a research and advisory consultancy dedicated to stakeholder engagement and science communication in the energy industry.

The transition to a more sustainable energy system requires a fundamentally new approach to engage stakeholders to be an integral part of the energy value chain. For instance, the customer is no longer just a recipient and user of energy, but also a potential producer, storage provider and flexibility agent. We therefore focus on facilitating the energy transition by placing consumers at the heart of the future energy systems.

However, with technical and complex solutions at its heart, the energy industry has not always been very appealing for the end customer and in this respect GECO Global has specialized in understanding what drives engagement and participation and in implementing engagement strategies. GECO Global works both directly with utilities and other actors in the energy industry and through research with both national and international bodies. GECO Global is a young company established in 2018, has its HQ in Denmark and an office in Helsinki. The company language is English.
