Optimistic German energy industry should better prepare for future - consultancy


The German energy industry is optimistic and sees itself well prepared for the future, financial services company KPMG said in its Future Readiness Index 2018. While its future readiness is "solid", it is currently facing only the beginning of a complex and fundamental transformation, and should better prepare for important future trends such as disruptive business models and technologies. Energy industry representatives see their sector well prepared for developments triggered by climate change, and many say that sector coupling is one of the key challenges of the coming years. KPMG writes that the energy industry has understood that customer needs are changing fundamentally with more and more prosumers in the market. For its index, KPMG evaluated a survey of 600 decision makers from all sectors of Germany’s economy.
