Energy | Utilities | Solar | Wind | Renewbles

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 cut costs, increase efficiencies and improve reliability in the power, solar, wind, renewables, 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. 

Our technology leadership services focus on assisting our firms' clients to address key drivers and issues facing the Energy & Utilities  industry including:

  • Protect People & Assets

  • Optimize Reliability & Continuity

  • Maximizing Operational Efficiency

  • Regulatory and Standards Requirements

  • Adhere and Simplify Compliance and Reporting

Our services provides the leadership, technology (software & infrastructure blueprints and execution), and subject matter expertise enabling our energy clients to turn disruptions like cloud, IoT, artificial intelligence, and data analytics into enablers creating new business opportunities and profitability.
