The modern utility has to embrace innovation and shake off the conservative, cautious strategies of yesterday. Digital transformation is turning traditional business models upside down, with formerly lucrative markets squeezed and new value chains popping up as customer behaviour evolves.

Start-ups, like teenagers who baffle their parents with their seemingly instinctive knowledge of how to work a smart TV, are dragging utilities into the digital age with their more nimble structure and better grasp of new technologies.
