Today, Every Fifth Utility Company In Germany Offers Photovoltaics To Households

The energy transition is changing the face of the energy market and its stakeholders. For utilities, this process also means a restructuring that will affect all areas. The energy transition involves products and services in the energy efficiency, mobility, electricity and heat sectors. It, therefore, creates numerous opportunities for utilities to grow by coming up with innovative solutions, but it also brings many risks. Customer relationships are changing. Simple power delivery is being replaced by more complex prosumer relationships. The portfolio of utility companies now consists of products such as photovoltaic installations and electrical storage systems, as well as new services in the mobility sector.
