There is a new trend to do business more directly - and it's being led by small businesses. See how it's changing the way businesses like yours are comparing and buying their energy.
Small businesses have always been close to their customers and suppliers. Now they're leveraging technology, data and innovation to speed up what's being called the 'direct' revolution.
