Utilities’ growth prospects are being undermined by significant shifts in energy demand, together with pressures on growth in capital asset spending. These shifts are propelling the need for a new business model, enabled by digital capabilities, that can position utilities to effectively respond to changes in energy management and consumption.
While most utilities are increasingly investing in digital assets, they are losing significant growth potential by not transforming their core business model. As a result, utilities risk being overtaken by new competitors from outside the industry. These new entrants are deploying digital technologies to not only transform the current energy value chain but to create a new energy system for the future. Find out how utilities organizations can make a truly digital shift in their business model to carve a new path to growth.
