The End of Business-as-Usual

We all know it and are part of it: The energy system is changing rapidly. Digitalization is advancing at incredible speed. Renewables, electrification of transportation and market deregulation are bringing enormous changes to the sector and are leading to the emergence of disruptive business models. We are seeing new players suddenly appear and gain huge traction. Technologies such as Big Data, AI or cloud computing now mature faster and faster, opening up massive possibilities for innovative, data-driven services. And the new generation of consumers - the digital natives – expect an “on-demand” user experience and are forcing utilities to become lifestyle providers. We are all part of the ongoing energy revolution.
