Published: 9 Sep 2015

The traditional utility business model of a pure-play centralised power producer and provider will soon be extinct. Distributed generation (DG) will increasingly feature in new utility value propositions as utilities try to capture more downstream opportunities. These will include several models, from an aggregator of DG to providing complete energy solutions for prosumers. The transformative effects of technology-enabled change will be seen in new models such as virtual power plants, demand response, cloud solutions, and energy-as-a-service. The supply-driven business models of the past will make way for customer-centric business models and utilities that fail to innovate and adapt will face the Utility Death Spiral in the next 10 years.
