Energy transition and the future(s) of the electricity sector

Utilities Policy, 2019, vol. 57, issue C, 97-105

Abstract: We develop narrative futures to analyze the impact that the energy transition may have on the electricity sector's organizational model: re-arrangement, incremental change, or first steps in a paradigm shift. What trajectories might the changes in the electricity sector follow? We look back at the way the centralized and standardized model was constructed before laying out how that model is being disrupted by the changes currently underway and then exploring the different factors – political, institutional, technical – that might influence change in the electricity sector and the scale of transformation it may undergo.
