Energy & Utilities
Of the many technology trends and disruptions driving the energy transition over the last 30 plus years, one in particular - digitalization - has come onto the scene with impressive potential to truly cut costs, increase efficiencies and improve reliability in the power and utility sector. For example, cloud technologies, 5G communications, data & analytics, IoT, and artificial intelligence if applied correctly in power plants and utility networks could save up to $100 billion annually through 2040 according to the International Energy Agency. This is a key driver for energy utilities, where we see digitalization influencing investment strategies growing at least 20% a year.
