Matt Grantham, as part of his Masters of Applied Finance at Macquarie University, recently analysed the corporate strategy for the recent demerger of EON in Europe (which is one of the world’s largest investor-owned electric utility service, based in Germany). The company was split into in low carbon distributed business (EON) while Uniper retained the high carbon intensity centralised assets. Matt will explore the corporate strategies associated with managing assets in diverging centralised and distributed markets and the lessons that can be learned from what happened in Europe. Matt recently published a series of articles in Renew Economy on this topic. Join us for a utilities’ guide for a brown to green transition.
