The future of energy – the question everyone’s asking
Start-ups and established digital companies all want to be ‘the next big thing’. They’re using digital platforms to revolutionise the way the energy system operates.
Utilities want to know what they’re ‘up against’. Offerings are being brought forward from companies operating in the peer-to-peer, behind the meter and electro-mobility spaces.
Financiers want to fund the next Tesla. They certainly don’t want to be involved in the next G-Wiz.
But ultimately, the question they’re all asking is this: which business models will actually come to dominate the future of energy?
Taking place at the QEII Centre in London on 9th November, the #ENERGY4.0 conference will be addressing that very question, and exploring:
- Who will emerge as the Airbnb or Uber of the energy sector?
- What services will they offer and how will they deliver them?
- Can existing energy companies adapt to the new digital economy, or will the relationship with customers be taken over by new players? Can utilities survive through identification and acquisition of disruptors?
Confirmed speakers include: Kristian Ruby (Secretary General, EURELECTRIC), Laszlo Varro (Chief Economist, IEA) and Francesco Venturini (Head of Global E-Solutions, ENEL).
Register soon for a glimpse into the future of energy systems.
