THE FUTURE AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES, A CHANGE OF MODEL IN THE ELECTRICAL SECTOR
Disruption in the energy sector is one of the innovations that we are waiting for and that will not be long in coming. The change, perhaps promoted by the massive arrival of electric vehicles on our roads, will affect the electricity generation model of our cities and regions, becoming new technologies.
The obtaining of electricity, until now, is centralized in large industries. This causes production to be centralized in a few companies and a high cost generated by electricity distribution to all parts of the country. However, the new technologies that are beginning to see the light will allow cities, towns, and even neighborhoods to be capable of self-sufficiency.
CITIZENS WILL BE ABLE TO DECIDE BETWEEN DIFFERENT MODELS ADAPTED TO THEIR ENERGY NEEDS
According to the leading technology companies in the electricity sector such as General Electric or Imesapi, the new generation products and systems will allow citizens to choose between different models adapted to their needs in the future, and thus be more efficient and cleaner.
Disruptions such as the electric vehicle or the blockchain will directly affect the business model of the sector, favoring a collaborative and decentralized model. Focusing on new customer profiles such as digital customers, the vast majority of them are already or will be connected and social customers.
THE BUSINESS MODEL OF ELECTRICITY COMPANIES SHOULD ADAPT TO NEW TRENDS
As a conclusion, we can say that the future business model of electricity companies must adapt to new trends, staying at the forefront and facing new challenges. Until now, the main drive to transform the sector came from regulatory policies, that is, it came from within the sector itself.
The scope of action of electricity companies will be more open, broader and more competitive. To be successful in this new energy model of the future, electricity companies will have to anticipate these impacts in their strategies and start making critical decisions today that facilitate the digital transformation and sustainability of their businesses.
