FSR organises workshop on “Future of energy utilities” with Bruegel and Fondazione Enrico Mattei

Digitalisation and decarbonisation led to a profound reshaping of the energy system in recent years. Energy utilities have reacted in different ways – sometimes winning the challenge, sometimes not.

In all cases, long-term business plans will require to be adjusted and it’s, therefore, time for an accurate re-thinking of energy companies’ business models.

How to adapt? And how to “think forward” and make the best of the new reality?

While oil and gas companies might still keep the focus on gas as a flexible back-up to unpredictable energy generated from renewables, some “traditional” electricity companies will have to reflect on the indispensability of their coal, nuclear and gas units – and make a bet on their future.

Moreover, new players are likely to emerge in the energy business – such as aggregators or hybrid entities between the traditional TSOs and DSOs.

The FSR Director Jean-Michel Glachant and the Head of FSR Gas Ilaria Conti will participate in this interesting closed-door brainstorming workshop – which is taking place today in Milan.
