Traditional business models of energy grid operators are under great pressure due to global technological innovations and the transition to renewable energy. Renewable energy is replacing fossil fuel generation and energy grids are being transformed from a top-down centralised system into one that is much more interactive, decentralised and fragmented.
Energy grid operators are facing the potential and urgency of increasing interactivity and connections with their clients. Energy consumers of the future will have greater say in how and where their energy is generated. With this in mind, smart grids are of great importance to grid operators.
Competition for traditional grid operators is increasing because more and more households are becoming self-sufficient and because new players are entering the market with new value propositions and revenue models. However, energy grid operators can play (within the legal boundaries) an important role in this energy transition.
All of these developments mean grid operators must be increasingly agile and be able to adapt to this turbulent environment.
