The energy and utilities market continues to undergo fundamental change. Legislation, fluctuating prices and decarbonisation are adding extra commercial pressure and driving innovation. Yet, many providers recognise the need to develop new, sustainable technology well before the government forces their hand.
As you face pressures of tighter legislation, climate change and internal market forces, energy and utility providers see the same consumer demands as many other industries: to provide omni-channel, customer-centric service giving choice, visibility and control to millions of customers at low cost.
The rapid growth of smart meters as part of the digitally connected home creates significant opportunities for those who can provide the right technology systems and platforms.
These emerging technologies require extensive testing to maximise performance whilst meeting necessary regulatory compliance.
Yet, somewhat paradoxically, newcomers are arriving all the time. Those newcomers, without the constraints of legacy investment in generation and supply, are using technology to attract and retain your customers.
