It’s a Tough Time to be in the Energy Business
The last decade has introduced a set of unexpected challenges to the energy and utilities industries. Organizations are attempting to make the difficult move from a cost-of-service to a performance-based billing model while coping with a global transition to low-carbon lifestyles and alternative energy sources.
Customers are also increasingly demanding a digitized experience for customer service, billing, and outage reporting.
In addition, utilities have a host of internal mountains to climb:
- Need for efficiency in booking, dispatching, and equipment monitoring
- Increasing demand for clean energy and green power sources
- Aging utility grids and outdated infrastructure
- Preparing for current and future energy demand
Technology is the Answer
Utilities across the continent are investing in technology solutions that improve efficiency and profitability.
- Analysts at Navigant Research expect utilities in the U.S. to invest $774 million annually on customer engagement solutions by 2022.
- Digital optimization can boost profitability for utilities by 20 to 30 percent.
- Making improvements to IT asset management practices can save utilities companies up to 20% (Gartner, June 2019).
- The top five utility technology investments in 2019 were: advanced metering infrastructure (AMI or “smart meters”), energy efficiency, demand response, meter data management, and analytics.
- A recent study found that a data-driven approach to predictive maintenance can potentially reduce annual utility downtime by 70 percent.
Digital Innovation That Mitigates Disruption
As utilities adjust to performance-based regulation (PBR) and green energy initiatives, the customer will increasingly become the focal point of business.
