We’re all working toward building a sustainable future – across industries, geographies and governments. Especially, the utility sector which has made significant headways in renewable energy and grid modernization. They have set aggressive targets for creating a decarbonized, zero-emissions future. While the progress made so far is impressive, the industry is still a work in progress when it comes to establishing the most critical partnership for achieving net zero – partnership with the customers.
The word ‘Partnership’ is so essential in the energy and water sector today as this is what will drive our collective abilities to achieve climate goals as we advance. It’s not a matter of IF we reach them, but a fact that we MUST. How can energy and water providers build customer partnerships as part of their decarbonization and net zero goals?
Creating customer partnerships for energy and water providers means connecting with customers in ways that work for them as part of their daily lives at home and at work. The core step is establishing that deep digital connection. With further technological advancements, this digital connection is becoming more and more through channels such as mobile phones and apps.
If creating the customer partnership is the first step, the crucial step two is creating value to sustain the partnership. This is the area where energy and water providers struggle the most. But this is also where many forward-thinking utilities are already taking strategic actions, setting benchmarks and advancing the customer experience. Here are some ways utilities can establish value-added collaborations with customers:
It is an important and exciting time for energy and water providers. And the move towards digital experiences is critical to building partnerships with customers to achieve our climate goals.
