The energy sector is facing a revolution that is not just being driven by the energy transition: Decarbonisation, digitisation and decentralisation are also challenging the traditional energy economy and changing the way energy is generated. The unavoidable rise of climate protection policy is accelerating the global trend for renewable energy and innovative technologies. The market can expect to see a clear increase in the importance of producing electricity from decentralised renewable power plants that rely on wind, solar power or photovoltaic technologies in combination with the use of energy storage solutions. It is likely that renewable energy will eventually replace traditional centralised approaches to generating electricity from fossil fuels. These changing expectations are causing market participants to shift away from energy supply products and towards smart behind-the-meter customer solutions like the smart home or Internet of Things.
This means established business models for the energy sector will fundamentally change – for the long-term. This development will be amplified by competition with new players from other sectors. Energy companies are adjusting their business strategies to adapt to this challenge and successfully respond to this market transformation. Partnerships and strategic alliances, including those with companies from different industries, will take on additional importance. The focus on profitable business areas will also drive an increase in the number of transactions in the energy sector.
