Business Models & Platforms - Thinking Beyond "Plug & Bill"

Now the Smart Home is here to stay, there needs to be an integrated plan for the future, moving it beyond a simplistic 'plug & bill' strategy.

Recorded: 08 Apr 2016

Webinar Overview

Assuming the Connected Home is here to stay, there needs to be an integrated plan for the future and a concerted effort to move energy (in this space) beyond a simplistic 'plug & bill' strategy. The connected home is made up of a number of smart devices which in turn stream and represent a treasure trove of consumer data and information. How will the key actors in this space work together to deliver the connected home promise? Is a device first approach sustainable or will the platform first thinkers be the winners? 

In this webinar our guest speakers explore and discuss;

  • New and value added services for the connected household
  • Data markets - seeing your customer as a supplier/partner
  • Building an integrated, open ended, business model
  • Taking the brand beyond the plug

At the heart of this session is the question of "how the energy sector will play and be portrayed" within this fast emerging space. Can the energy sector (in particular retailers) regain the initiative or have they missed the boat? Is there a need to re-align service offerings and in turn the opportunity to play enabler?
