The Digitally Enabled Grid: How can utilities survive the energy demand disruption?

According to Accenture research, utilities face significant revenue losses from continued growth of distributed energy resources and energy efficiency measures. In the face of such disruption, how can utilities effectively manage the transition to a digital grid?

The Digitally Enabled Grid: How can utilities survive the energy demand disruption?

  1. 1. How can utilities survive the energy demand disruption?
  2. 2. 2Copyright © 2015 Accenture All rights reserved. How will new energy technologies increasingly disrupt network costs and performance, and existing business models? 15% Potential of demand reduction from rapidly evolving energy technologies by 2025 Energy conservation and demand response Energy efficiency (Building shell insulation, efficient appliances) Energy substitution (Electrification of transport and heating) Distributed generation (Photovoltaics, storage, mini and micro CHP)
  3. 3. 3Copyright © 2015 Accenture All rights reserved. Accenture Digitally Enabled Grid research program An annual research program to evaluate the implications and opportunities of an increasingly digital grid (2014) Survey: (2014) Scenario analysis model: 85 utilities executives interviewed in 20 countries Extensive modelling to assess how distributed energy resources, energy efficiency, energy substitution and energy conservation and demand response would impact the network and business models

Increasing internal and external pressure to address the complexity, cost implications and opportunities from the future grid Competition to grow Risk of grid faults to rise Threats to revenue to increase 2013 2014 43% 61% Distributed generation? Competition in data-related services? 2013 2014 85% 92% Distributed renewable generation (low-voltage connection)? 2013 2014 41% 61%
  5. 5. 5Copyright © 2015 Accenture All rights reserved. How far will new energy technologies disrupt costs and performance, and existing business models? Up to $48bn revenue at risk in the United States based on load reduction Up to €61bn revenue at risk in Europe* based on load reduction STATUS QUO DEMAND DISRUPTION PERFECT STORM 3 scenarios to assess the impact of new technologies on load and the utility business model Source: Accenture Analysis. * Europe analysis includes Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.
  6. 6. 6Copyright © 2015 Accenture All rights reserved. PERFECT STORM STATUS QUO DEMAND DISRUPTION Reduction in load Increase in impact on operations and reliability Drop in revenues The most likely scenario? Changes accelerate with favorable economics Greater penetration of energy efficiency distributed generation due to customer behavior, lower technology prices and higher electricity prices
  7. 7. 7Copyright © 2015 Accenture All rights reserved. Beyond the meter services Distribution platform integrator Energy services “Obligation to serve” “Commitment to optimize” Commodity delivery Distributed energy production services Information services Intelligent grid operator Pure-play transport Utilities will need to rethink their role and scope in the value chain
  8. 8. 8Copyright © 2015 Accenture All rights reserved. 3major areas of focus to manage migration to a new model Protect earnings in current model and shape migration to new model FOCUS AREAS ACTIONS Regulations and tariffs New customer model and services Grid optimization Invest in key capabilities in preparation for new model Make strategic choices on role and scope of services in market
  9. 9. 9Copyright © 2015 Accenture All rights reserved. 1strategic roadmap that considers the three focus areas critical to migration to the new model Grid operations improvement (0 to 3 years) Improved integration and control (2 to 5 years) Fully digital grid (3-10 years) New tariffs and policies for DG (0 to 3 years) Distribution communities (2 to 5 years) Platform distribution provider (3-10 years) Digital customer interaction model (0 – 2 years) Service trials and extensions (0 to 3 years) Scale digital services and platform (3-5 years) Grid optimization Regulations and tariffs New customer model and services
