This paper proposes a framework for business adaption in the rapidly changing energy sector of Switzerland. By using a multi-level perspective, this study separately addresses the incumbent regime, exogenous landscape, and niche innovations of the sector. A synthesis of existing research and original qualitative research, in the form of surveys and interviews, provides a novel perspective on the socio- technical transitions occurring in the Swiss energy sector. This paper recommends that utilities expand their services to meet additional consumer needs because business plans that rely solely on selling electricity are no longer sustainable.
