Our latest New Energy Consumer research draws on the opinions of 500 energy providers across 14 countries. This year we explore what energy companies think the future holds for their industry and how are they building the muscle, speed, and agility they need to survive and thrive in a demand-driven world.
Energy providers are at the heart of delivering the energy transition, and their strategic landscape is being transformed as the global effort to reach net-zero gathers pace. At the same time, they are facing a second era-defining dynamic: digital transformation is disrupting markets across the economy, destroying old business models as it creates new ones, and reshaping consumer expectations. Can energy providers survive this period of tumultuous change?
We identified five key areas energy providers need to consider as they strive to become more demand-driven: Purpose, products, platforms, people and partnerships. Learn more.
Across utilities, we’re helping transform companies to continuously adapt and improve outcomes through innovation.
Powering distribution for the energy transition
Distribution businesses are facing looming disruption as the energy transition progresses. In fact, most distribution executives are already seeing some level of disruption in at least one area of their business operations. What is needed: New approaches and new roles toward a more data-driven, intelligent distribution system with advanced visibility and control at the core.
In the latest edition of our Digitally Enabled Grid research, we explore the tipping points for disruption, outline four areas for delivering this new distribution system and examine the actions needed—now and within the next decade, to lead the charge for change toward a net-zero future.READ THE REPORT
