Consumers, Prosumers, Prosumagers: How Customer Stratification will Disrupt the Utility Business Model examines customer stratification in the electric power sector, arguing that it is poised to become one of the fundamental drivers of the 21st century power network as distributed energy generation, storage, sharing and trading options become available at scale. The book addresses the interface and the relationship between key players and their impacts on incumbent and disruptive service providers. Topics covered include innovations that lead to consumer stratification, regulatory policy, the potential of service, the speed and spread of stratification, and a review of potential business models and strategies.

“Sioshansi’s new book is a must-read for anyone interested in the evolution of the electricity sector. While the sector’s historical roots are useful for understanding how we find ourselves with the current infrastructure and system of networks, its future will prove to be more dynamic and flexible than anyone could have thought possible. This book will show you how that will come about.” — Roger Lilley in EE Publishers

“In essence, there is probably no other volume at present that does such a good job of explaining the changes being seen across the energy industry… and why they are vital to our way of life today.” — Jason Deign on Amazon UK

“An absolutely outstanding new book by an authoritative and well-known author about the many new industry trends. Incredibly complete and thorough with the contribution of over 20 co-authors from every continent, it describes in much detail the rapidly evolving dynamics and the ever-changing business environment, with a particular focus on disruptive market novelties, new consumer-centric innovations, technology breakthroughs and many more most modern industry trends – all from a truly global perspective.” — Daslav Brkic, Visiting Professor at the Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy

“If you are curious about the future potential of distributed and digitalised clean energy, you will be fascinated by this book. If you want to believe in the continued success of today’s electricity utility business model, you might find it rather uncomfortable to read. Fereidoon Sioshansi’s latest edited volume explores how units as small as households can become energy owner-user-managers with their own mini-systems and business relationships.” — Jesse Scott, Agora Energiewende (Berlin) in Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy.
