Energy Management

Energy demand reduction can be accelerated in the top three highest use energy sectors; buildings, industry and transport, through greater understanding and use of digital approaches. Government carbon reduction goals and technological advances in energy using equipment that reduce energy and increase other values to the customer – Those are just two key measures to reduce global decarbonization targets.

To unlock the potential of energy efficiency measures and accelerate the global energy transition 3 actions are needed:

  • Better understanding of the economic and environmental benefits of energy demand reduction
  • Greater political commitment to incentivize CO2 savings
  • Technological advances in energy savings for equipment across all sectors, that reduce power consumption and increase other core values to users in equal measures.

Grids

Our grid infrastructure is changing fundamentally as we are rapidly moving towards a more and more decentralized energy system. Power grids are the backbone of the energy transition. To ensure that the critical infrastructure is ready to accelerate the energy transition and tackle the challenge of delivering up to 100% green power to the end user, some key challenges need to be addressed:

  • Renewal of the aging grid infrastructure
  • Update energy market models which are designed for fossil-fuels and address policy and regulatory issues to incentivize the uptake of green power
  • Having a future proof mindset and workforce: Grid companies need to be agile, technologically and digitally savvy to adapt and keep pace with growing complexities and changes to the power grid landscape.

Renewables

The environmental benefits of expanding the share of renewable energy in our total energy mix are clear: We are in a global transformation to reduce carbon emissions. Corporate power buyers want cost-effective, clean power. Utilities, driven by government regulation and consumer sentiment, turn their generation to clean, cost-effective power. Yet to reach a sustainable and global dominance of renewables in our generation mix, some barriers still need to be tackled. 

These include: 

  • Acceleration and cost reduction of energy storage solutions globally 
  • Emerging renewable markets may turn to fossil fuels for their economic recovery
  • Increase public acceptance for the environmental and economic benefit of renewable energy projects

Technology Outlook 2030

In an era where unicorns and mega-tech companies already seemingly appear overnight, what does the next decade hold for us? That technology development is accelerating is a given, but its digitalized, non-linear trajectory and global scale is hard for individuals to comprehend. It requires dedicated expertise and effort to even begin to answer the questions.
