Distributed energy is disrupting the utility business model

Distributed energy: Disrupting the utility business model

Distributed energy, or local energy production, may disrupt the traditional business model of utility companies.

Driven by the increase of energy costs, local production is becoming competitive and affordable, particularly through the use of photovoltaic cells.

This new imbalance is creating opportunities in:

  • helping customers generate their own energy supply;
  • managing end-user demand for energy;
  • controlling the distribution and consumption of energy within a local network.

But there’s still plenty of room to innovate in Energy Efficiency related products and direct-current networks to power LED lighting and other electronic devices.
