Uberizing Energy: How Digital Technologies Will Change the Competitive Landscape of the Energy Sector
From how we move around cities to how we buy household items, digital technologies have brought about significant changes over the past 20 years in many aspects of our lives and in almost every part of the marketplace. While these changes may have happened first and most conspicuously with the meteoric rise of companies like Uber and Amazon, however, similar architectural shifts are starting to unfold in the energy sector as well. By examining “fast clockspeed” industries and unpacking the market forces and competitive dynamics that have contributed to these shake-ups and significantly new business models, this talk will explain how the energy market of the future will probably look significantly different from how it looks today.
