Utility Strategies

The consolidation of gas, power, and water assets is not a new phenomenon, but, given the state of municipal water infrastructure, investor-owned gas and power utilities are exploring opportunities for portfolio diversification.

Critical infrastructure services signal merge ahead

The convergence between water and other critical infrastructure service providers (e.g. gas, electric power) is showing signs of activity. Headlined by large water platform acquisitions, electric and gas companies and independent power & gas providers are looking to water & wastewater assets beyond their core business footprints. By leveraging in-depth understanding of infrastructure investment, customer rate-bases, utility workforce management, and utility commissions, these outsiders looking into the water market foresee operational and financial synergies. >>Learn More

Water stress drives utilities prioritize alternative solutions

As water stress and related conservation efforts apply downward pressure on utilities’ volume-based revenues, utilities are turning to alternative methods to improve operational efficiency and secure unaccounted revenue. This trend includes the adoption of nascent state-driven digitally enabled leakage management solutions, alternative rate structures, water reuse and desalination, and water storage. >>Learn More

Utilities and smart home tech companies converge

A number of forward-thinking U.S. utilities and municipalities are embracing new technologies and business models to improve their own operations and performance. Highlighting this trend are a select group of early adopting water utilities that are partnering with smart home water management providers. At the center of the partnerships are exchanges of data and access to the household water consumption data within the utilities’ respective service areas. Much like the power sector has begun to tighten its understanding on the end-user, new technologies are poised to enable similar approaches in water, thereby benefitting utilities, customers, insurance companies, vendors, and more.>>Learn More

Scaling capital and operational expenditures redefine utility business models

The advent of new technologies and business models, however, present opportunities for utility leaders to transform their wastewater treatment operations. This includes resource recovery of produced byproducts and even the potential generation of alternative revenue streams of an estimated US$678 million each year on sludge management. >>Learn More.
