A day in the life of the future Utilities Manager

Last month, we launched our latest research ‘The Future Utilities Manager’: a report which provides insight into how the role of the Energy Manager will change by 2030. Here, we look at what a typical day in the role of the Utilities Manager of the future will look like.

Who are the Utility Managers of 2030?

The future Utilities Manager will be a data scientist. Their role will be more senior within the business and involved in more strategic investment decisions. Energy, water, waste, health & safety and environmental regulations will all fall under the remit of the utilities manager, making closer working relationships with operations and maintenance teams a necessity.

He or she will be a digital native, using their IT skills to their advantage. This will allow for more efficient use of data and thus more effective decision making. You can meet Jake, your future Utilities Manager here.


A typical day

The Utilities Manager of the future won’t be covering the same activities that they spend time on today. Less time will be spent on site, as a greater depth of information will be available remotely. Their focus will shift to monitoring and decision making.

  • They will have to make more strategic investment decisions
  • They will have a higher-level of technology awareness and ability, using AI to aid decision making
  • They will be tasked with optimising plant life-cycle and finding opportunity within the circular economy.
