Utility of The Future

To continue to meet customers’ needs, utilities must adapt to dramatic changes in the energy sector. These changes are driven by a variety of forces: Decarbonization, Technology & Market Development and Regulatory Environment. Mostly, however, and most importantly for us, the energy sector is being changed by our customers, and their changing needs and expectations. Beyond the underlying requirement to efficiently deliver safe and reliable energy, utilities must serve as trusted partners as our customers’ (large and small, in all sectors)  seek visibility and control of their energy bills, new products and services, and an overall ‘frictionless’ interaction with their utility.

A digital grid isn’t enough

It is clear that the world, including energy distribution, is getting more connected and digital. In order to stay a relevant actor during and after this evolution everyone and almost everything has to adopt. Therefore, it is important to realize that it is not enough just to become digital or connected one has to become digitalized. Of course, this includes the use of modern technologies, but equally important and a must to get there is a change in mind-set as well as working culture. To become digitalized one has to use of new business models, machine learning and automation. Distribution has to become On Demand in all aspects. The important factor is that you act when there is a need. In addition to the above mentioned changes it is also important that the regulation follows the evolution and allows the DSOs to develop and make use of technologies needed for their core business.

Using Digital to Drive Fundamental Change in a Network Utility

Changing technology and a tougher regulatory environment means network utilities have to overcome their innate conservatism and rapidly adopt digital innovation. 30%+ efficiency improvements in the core regulated business will become an industry norm to reconcile customer and shareholder demands.

But more fundamental change is required, and we are starting a journey to re-define the way our business works
