New Utility Business Model: leverage customer base

The typical utility model of the past is dead. The rise of renewables is often mentioned as one of the key reasons. But to change the strategy of such a giant is nothing you can do within a few months, not even years. Oliver Wyman, The New Utility Business Model, is based on a study from MIT Energy Initiative and Game Changers in the Energy System (based on a whitepaper from World Economic Forum and McKinsey) EDF has launched the enervee marketplace, called EDF Électriscore. Enervee built a data engine delivering an energy efficiency efficiency score. It can also link this to buying prices and show you what industry calls "total cost of ownership" And it delivers an Amzon kind of consumer experience. And this is Miles away from the old paper bill, heres how European Energy Companies See The (Near) Future. the EDF is based in Europe's future.
