Corporate startups will be only one of the many manifestations of a newly digitalised insurance industry. Other manifestations will include new platforms, non-corporate startups and solutions created by tech players. In this blog post, I explain why this is the case and why corporate startups will be making a significant contribution.

Digitalisation is on everyone’s lips. Everyone is talking about it. My perception, however, is that we usually talk about digitalisation in far too abstract a way and forget what is happening at a more concrete level.

Since 2016, utility companies in Germany have been obliged to digitalise their metering operations by the German Metering Point Operation Act (Messstellenbetriebsgesetz). Up to now, this has primarily focused on the electricity sector, but that is about to change with the draft bill for the Regulation on the Amendment of the German Heating Costs Ordinance (Verordnung über die Änderung der Heizkostenverordnung), which will also focus on submetering. In my blog post, I will explain everything you need to know about this topic.
