Wayne Pales’ presentation at Digital Utilities
The energy industry is currently undergoing an enormous transformation and we face regulatory uncertainty and policies that can hinder our ability to invest in a low-carbon economy. Consumer adoption of new energy technologies, such as rooftop solar, battery storage and the connected home, is changing the face of the industry, as are new entrants who will dramatically impact traditional revenue models.
Consumers are on this journey regardless of what utilities do, so utilities must leverage digital data to deliver services and products that position them at the heart of what is an inevitable transformation to a highly digitised and decentralised energy system. This presentation in particular will look at the critical role that demand response and third party access to energy data will play in the future success of a utility.
