ETS provides an excellent opportunity for energy leaders across the U.S. to come together and reinvigorate thinking around the energy transition. As energy-only management consultants, we understand the importance of being prepared for change, and ready to act in a way that’s low risk and high reward.

To that end, we hope to see you at our panel—we'll be discussing the practicalities of building new business models.

The Practical Path to Your New Business Model

Tuesday March 27, 2018 3:00pm - 3:45pm
W Hotel Austin 200 Lavaca Street, Austin, TX, 78701

Blockchain. The rise of the prosumer. Smart appliances, smarter cities, and bigger data. With technological, market, and customer changes bombarding the energy sector, pioneering new business models is no longer optional. But defining your utility’s future doesn’t have to come at the expense of operational excellence or a massive R&D investment.

Moderated by us (innogy Consulting), this panel includes executives from innogy and an array of U.S. utilities sharing their best practices for developing and testing new business models. Discussion will focus on the practicalities of setting up, funding, measuring, and pacing innovation activities for your utility’s profitability and prosperity tomorrow.
