The Smartest Strategies get Derailed.
In today’s hyper-connected world, utilities are under increased pressure and scrutiny. Shareholders, ratepayers, politicians and environmental activists often create turbulence for services where reliability is critical for commerce. Competition for infrastructure investment, renewable energy and a focus on being “green” permeating everything we do creates clutter for even the clearest messages to break through. For utility companies and others in the energy industry, there’s no such thing as “business as usual.” A new energy future has dawned.
Whether you’re an upstream producer, an energy services supplier, a solar or wind operator or provide transportation and distribution, your business is at risk. Even with the smartest business strategies, things like activists, cyber breaches, major incidents or changes or delays in regulatory approvals can derail your activities. Plan on “flying below the radar”? Think again. Deciding to “weather the storm” is a recipe for watching your customers, investors and reputations disappear.
