The energy sector enters the digital era
The energy industry is in the midst of profound change, powered by a range of external factors. As a result of national and EU requirements such as the 20/20/20 targets, utilities must rethink and restructure.
The energy market is in the throes of a transition. To meet changing market requirements, utilities, meter operators and other service providers require flexible, reliable and secure high-performance ICT landscapes. Environmental awareness, climate change and renewable energy all lead to higher prices and greater cost pressures. Utilities have to provide flexible tariffs, and allow customers in local markets to switch providers and price plans with ease and speed. Growing competition and greater customer centricity call for flexible processes and ICT infrastructures, in conjunction with comprehensive security.
