The electric power sector is poised for transformative changes. The growing penetration of distributed energy resources, including distributed generation such as solar PV or fuel cells, electric vehicles, stationary batteries, and demand response, could remake electricity markets, power system operations, and utility business models alike. Regulators, utilities, and new technology companies are now positioning themselves for a new era of electricity innovation. What will the utility sector of the future look like? Who will deliver electricity services a decade or two from now? Who is best positioned to grow market share and capture new market opportunities? Will energy consumers benefit from a more distributed power system?
