Leadership Forum: Demand-side management in Asia-Pacific


Asia Pacific, led by China, Japan and South Korea, is expected to invest up to $10bn on smart grid and associated applications, accounting for 60% of the global market this year. Deployment of smart grid, coupled with increasing adoption of distributed solar across the region, is prompting new approaches to demand-side management. The success of these approaches is not solely dependent on technology deployment; changes to existing regulatory regimes, adoption of interoperable standards and business model innovation are also needed to ensure success. This two-day Leadership Forum will bring together sixty thought leaders from utilities, manufacturers, financiers and developers to examine approaches across the region and develop actionable recommendations suitable uniquely to countries within Asia Pacific.

Future of the Utility Business Model

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The utility business model is facing a period of profound transformation. Changing demand patterns, the rise of renewables, and broader improvements in energy efficiency together present a significant threat to many utilities. Meanwhile, a host of other groups could further disrupt the market and carve out their own piece of energy revenues. There is a danger that utilities will bear most of the costs of this transition but capture few of the benefits. However, the future is not set. Utilities may still be uniquely positioned within the energy system to capitalise on emerging opportunities in solar PV, energy storage and home energy services.

This two day, invitation-only forum will bring together thought leaders from utilities, technology companies, regulators, and policy makers across Europe to discuss the future of the utility business model, strategies for success, and the implications for the wider energy system.
