Note from the editor


 
The electric utility industry is undergoing a huge transformation and understanding the trends shaping its future is essential.
That's why we're creating Trendlines, a new destination on Utility Dive to dive deep into the forces that impact your business. Each Trendline is a living, in-depth resource featuring stories written by our team of journalists to provide insights into an important trend. We will regularly update Trendlines throughout the year as new developments emerge.
Today, we're excited to share our first Trendline on Utility Business Model Reform with you. As utilities target the evolving demands of customers, regulators and others, new ideas and actions are arising, from subscription-based models for electricity and other energy services to partnerships with distributed energy resource providers.
We hope you enjoy reading our first Trendline on Utility Business Model Reform — and stay tuned for Trendlines on other key topics driving the power sector. We would love to hear your feedback.
