      Bright analysis, thanks a lot! I would go a step further... Digitalization should not only solve problems but enable new business models, meaning it should create a competitive edge - if possible! This requires a new approach for value creation: Instead of an upstream analysis and subsequent implementation, business innovation here starts with a prototype (probe), which is then tested in the market for acceptance (sense) and finally implemented (respond).

      Thanks for sharing your great insights! I would like to stress that a receptive culture, the ability to change mindsets, behaviors, and ways to think about the opportunity digital technologies afford, are key to the success of any digital project. Can't stress that enough. Thanks for bringing that up!

      Great blog Andrew. One puzzle is how best to encourage customers to change behaviour in ways that benefit them and all of us. Whilst customers with little money are very aware of price, there is evidence that a surprisingly big majority of energy customers are very 'price insensitive'. When asked, most people don't know how much their energy bills are and their view of whether prices are rising / falling / too high is based on headlines they see in the media rather than what they actually pay. We know energy customers can save hundreds of pounds a year by switching to the best deals but still most do not. Simple time of day price signals may have little impact on customer behaviour. Somehow we need to make changing patterns of use more interesting or fun for customers or automate the changes or bundle them with other services. The 'fourth D' of the energy transition is democratisation. Customers will choose to do or not do things that have implications for our energy systems. We have to find ways to give them good choices.
