New Energy Business Model Service

About the service

New energy is characterised by a vast and complex variety of new technologies and business models. This change could be incredibly disruptive for those who fail to respond, but also creates huge opportunity for those that do.  New Energy Business Model Service simplifies this complexity and helps subscribers identify, develop and grow new ideas and propositions. We are a cross cutting service that can help understand: 

Simon Briggs, Principal Analyst

The rise in energy prices has created a wave of interest from domestic and business customers on how they deal with their energy bills. Investment in renewable energy is starting to become a ‘no brainer’ for those who can afford it. For those who can’t, innovative business models and customer propositions could provide access. 

Other industries have been transformed as they moved away from traditional product sales and into new digital, service-based business models. We expect energy to follow suit, it’s just a question of how fast. The potential for almost any ‘as a service’ business model is there, and could be far-reaching for heating, solar and EV charging.
