Low carbon, high stakes: Does the electric utilities sector have the power to transform?
The aim of this masterclass is to elaborate on new energy business models, given the massive and disruptive changes in the global energy market. The changing energy world is forcing companies to innovate in order to stay competitive. Can energy companies that act as backbones of the current energy system continue to thrive in an age of energy transition and new energy paradigms?
During this masterclass we will discuss the current situation and the urgency of renewal. Which new business models are emerging? And what kind of (r)evolutions do we need in the energy utility sector? Together with other students you will work on a business case and think about the key characteristics of the transformed energy market.
