Energy and Utilities

The energy industry is currently witnessing a global change, driven by the emergence of the unconventional oil industry in the United States, and concerns on climate change. The tremendous growth in unconventional oil production in the last decade has resulted in disruptive changes not only on the energy sector, but also on business, geopolitics and the environment.

The other major concern for the energy sector is the continuous rise in carbon emissions, which may lead to irreversible climate change.

This can only be addressed by increasing the installation capacities of renewable energy, and improving the energy efficiencies in industries, buildings, residences and vehicles.

Consequently, the future of energy envisions a shift in the global energy balance, where natural gas, solar, wind, and bioenergy is expected to become the new energy sources of the future. Moreover, new technologies such as energy storage, energy management systems, and smart grid infrastructure will contribute to making the global energy sector more efficient.

Through continuous tracking and monitoring of both technology and product developments, the global Energy & utility team is uniquely positioned to analyze and predict technology and market trends that will result in the creation of new markets, products and services, business models and even new industries.

With more than 500 published research services, briefings, interactive workshops and emerging technology newsletters, the main aim is to provide clients with holistic information to make well-informed business and strategic decisions, be it for day-to-day operations or for long term business planning.
