New business models in the energy industry


The mandatory roll-out of intelligent measuring systems is not a selfsufficient and shrewd business model.


The crucial questions for energy providers are:


  • What does the future of energy look like?
  • Which new business areas and value-added services will emerge and what are their prerequisites?
  • Which new market segments are emerging, who are the players and how can an energy supplier establish itself there?



Rolling out value-added services via the devolo SMGWplus


The Act on the Digitisation of the Energy Turnaround paves the way to a completely new world of energy. The smart meter gateway, as the central communication and safety element, allows the establishment of a variety of new business ideas. This will be urgently needed because the time for the traditional utility company business areas is coming to an end. The ideas for new services offered by using the intelligent measuring system are manifold. The range extends from energy-related value-added services to ambient assisted living concepts (AAL).


The implementation of these services is quickly realized with the SMGWplus, as the device is ready for value-added services from the moment it leaves the factory.
