Global Power & Utilities Survey 2015


“We are witnessing considerable disruption in the power sector arising from a combination of policy, technological and customer change. It’s creating a transformation in how we think about, produce and use electricity.

In some parts of the world, disruption is already taking a strong hold. In other parts of the world, it is just beginning. It comes on top of the already considerable existing challenges companies face in providing energy security, affordability and sustainability.

Our survey looks at what is driving the change and where it is leading to. Therefore we talked with 73 top-level power & utility company executives from 52 countries all around the world. We include an analysis of some of the principal disruptive factors at work. Looking further ahead, we find that a big majority in our survey expect significant or very significant market model change by 2030. Most think that current business models won’t be sustainable and many think existing business models are already broken.”
