AbstractA recent survey by the Vlerick Energy Centre in close collaboration with KPMGon the future of Distribution System Operators (DSOs) shows that top executives from Distribution System Operators across Europe expect significant changes in their role and business environment. Vlerick Energy Centre Chairman, Daniel Dobbeni, explains: “Decentralised and renewable electricity generation as well as customers becoming rapidly both consumers and self-suppliers will change the power sector like never before. To keep the lights on, the industry actors must quickly acquire new knowledge and confront their experiences.” This research launched the new Vlerick-KPMG Chair on energy and was actively supported by the European sector organisations CEDEC, EDSO, Eurelectric and GEODE. Professor Leonardo Meeus and Professor Koen Tackx asked 108 executives from 24 countries about the changes they foresee in the energy sector by 2020. In total they represent up to 70% of all European distribution customers.
