Power and utilities companies are reinventing themselves in the face of immense changes in their business environment.  And the changes are huge not only in terms of policy and regulation but also in terms of technology.  Add into this price volatility, a change in consumer attitudes and the need for a massive amount of investment into the industry and the landscape for utilities companies is very different from ten or even five years ago.


The winners will be those who are agile and have a clear view of their core competencies and their customer needs.

In the UK alone, £200bn needs to be invested in energy infrastructure and at least a further £40bn in the water sector over the next ten years to meet the challenges of climate change, decarbonisation and population growth.  These investment needs can only be met if access to capital is maintained, this paper identifies the options.
