• The digitisation of utilities is the greatest challenge currently facing the sector, with much to do to modernise existing networks, work practices and ways of interacting with customers.

But it’s also an area of great excitement and opportunity for those utilities willing to be brave, and step boldly into a new paradigm.


At Digital Utilities 2019, delegates will hear from the industry’s leaders – those who are taking the action required to turn their organisations into modern, dynamic utilities, equipped to provide customers with the services they expect, at the times they demand and at a price they are prepared to pay.


Digital is inevitable for all companies in the utility sector. There are always winners and losers with any major change – the question is, will your business be at the forefront of the digital revolution, or will you be left behind?
