The Utility Industry Sector consists of companies that partake in the distribution and sale of energy or water to the final consumer.

The Industry Sector is a classification that describes the activity of an entity within the economy. The classification is based on where the relevant entity derives the majority of its revenue.

CMDportal uses industry sector classifications both at the Legal Entity level, as well as at the Group level. At the Legal Entity level the entity is classified by their actual industry activity. Accordingly, we classify a finance company that is part of a utility corporation as a financial corporation at the entity level but at the group level as for example a “Corporate – Energy.”
