2017 marks a pivotal shift for utilities.
With intervention in the energy retail market looking like a political certainty, further competition planned for regulated markets, and the many uncertainties created by Brexit, change is the only certainty for utilities.
What’s more, increased merger and acquisition activity, the impact of digitisation, changing business models and the threat of new entrants make this a particularly dynamic time for water, gas and electricity players of all sizes.
How will regulation evolve to reflect these changes? How will utilities transform to adapt to this new landscape? And how can the sector maintain investor confidence and build customer trust?
All of these issues and more will be explored at the 2017 Utility Week Congress, where policy makers, regulators, utilities, investors and the supply chain come together every year to tackle the most pressing challenges facing the sector.
Join us in Birmingham for unrivalled networking, knowledge exchange and debate as we bring the journalistic expertise of Utility Week to life on stage.
