Developing Customer Products and Services with New Electro Technologies (white paper)

The utility industry is witnessing an unprecedented electro-technology revolution – both on the supply (generation) side and the demand (customer end-products) side. This rise of electro-technology products and services holds the possibility of simultaneously providing significant benefits to utility customers and utility shareholders. Unfortunately, utilities have a mixed history, at best, with respect to the development and launch of new products and services. Will this time be any different? It could be, or perhaps for the survival of some, it has to be different, but it will require a disciplined approach to determining what products and services to offer and how to offer them in a way that satisfies customers and makes money for the utility.

Electric Vehicles Are Here. Is Your EV Strategy Ready?

There are nearly 500,000 plug-in electric vehicles (EV) on U.S. roads today. Almost every car manufacturer offers an electric vehicle with over 14 models to choose from and more on the way. The cost of EVs is declining, while the range on a full charge is rapidly increasing. Tesla and Chevy plan on introducing new models with a range of over 200 miles at a cost of around $35,000 or less by 2018. Bloomberg New Energy Finance estimates that by 2022, the total cost of EVs will reach parity with their internal combustion counterparts. That’s likely to be the point of “lift off” for EV sales.
