if you are a utility executive, or have an interest in utility market regulation, please check this article out.   It is based on the thought of Corneli and Khim from Berkley Lab.   Whilst the content has a strong US, rate based flavour, the principles described could apply to any regulated electric utility.   The bookends of models described for 2030, will emerge and evolve in one shape or form over the coming decade.   How existing business model frameworks are either protected or accelerated from this point on is not necessarily something the sector, as it stands, is totally in control of.   There is an imminent, consistent wave of change emerging.   Navigating the forward course will take courage and boldness.   However, the fundamental need for connected electric networks should be assured – the underlying evolving market models are where the risks and opportunities lie!
