Digital Transformation in the Energy and Utilities Industry: What you Need to Know

16 August 2023, last update 1 February 2024 2 min read

The energy and utilities industry is currently undergoing a rapid transformation driven by various factors such as changing energy sources, complex regulations, and evolving customer expectations. With the increasing demand for renewable energy sources and the need for efficient distribution, organizations in this sector are facing new challenges in this digital era. Legacy systems, scarcity of resources, and the requirement to quickly adapt to regulatory changes pose significant obstacles. In this article, we will explore 3 main challenges and discover how CLEVR can help energy and utilities companies overcome these hurdles, drive digital transformation and ultimately, enhance customer service.


What Are the Key Challenges Energy Companies Encounter?

  • Legacy Systems Holding Back Progress:

Legacy systems have become a barrier to progress in the energy and utilities industry. These outdated systems are ill-equipped to keep up with the fast-paced economy. They lack the necessary capabilities to leverage emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Internet of Things (IoT), and distributed ledger technology. As a result, companies find it difficult to evolve at the required speed to meet industry demands.

  • Scarcity of Resources and Operational Efficiency:

Another challenge faced by energy companies is the scarcity of resources, particularly skilled workforce. The operational efficiency of energy and utility companies is compromised due to the lack of available workforce. This shortage not only hinders day-to-day operations but also impacts the ability to execute essential tasks efficiently.

  • Rapid Regulatory Changes and Compliance:

The regulatory landscape in the energy and utilities sector is becoming increasingly complex. Companies must adapt quickly to meet regulatory requirements surrounding decarbonization, digitalization, and decentralization. Failing to comply with these rapid changes can result in penalties and hinder business growth.
