EY, together with a leading global analyst house, has modeled three critical tipping points that mark utilities’ potential journey toward a new energy system. In most regions analyzed, these tipping points are staggered over a number of years, allowing utilities time to learn lessons from adapting to one to prepare for the next. But the U.S. is different.
This complex and highly regionalized sector — which includes five distinct energy markets — will have longer to prepare for change. Unlike other regions though, U.S. tipping points will arrive almost on top of each other. How can utilities prepare for such radical and comprehensive transformation?
