What Our Founding Members Have to Say

Personally and professionally, Utility 2030 Collaborative really gives us a chance to tackle some of the important challenges facing utilities as we look ahead to the future, like what makes a modern utility customer experience, how can we simplify the complexities of technology “as-a-service” options, and what core principles for utilities to really put their customer’s interests at the center of their businesses. No industry overcomes those challenges in isolation, so finding a synthesis of best practices from an array of industries together with utility executives leaning in on the challenges makes Utility 2030 a great standard bearer for those future innovations.

With pressure coming from consumers , regulators and shareholders, utilities are at a crossroad forcing them to reassess their business model to identify ways to remain competitive. The future is a digital utility but where do you start ? Agility , rapid decision making , and continuous improvements are the new way of life but are all scary words to the traditional utility. At Utility 2030 our goal is to build out the methodology , roadmap and digital execution guide to remove the fear of change and allow any utility to take the steps to become a digital utility.

The Utility 2030 Collaborative’s core focus is to emphatically (and finally) put the customer at the center of the energy utility’s universe. The Collaborative is made up of committed utilities and energy partners that have this customer centric focus. Our approach is to apply best practices and successes from inside and outside our industry to align with the critical/core goals of just about every utility.  Through the Collaborative’s focus on the customer, their needs, and our connection to them, I believe that we can do more to advance our industry in the next 10 years than has been accomplished in the last 5 decades.
