Fostering Effective Energy Transition 2021 report.

Taking charge of the evolving energy transition

As we approach net zero, utilities and energy service providers are moving from backstage to take on a central role in the era of electricity.

This shift means embracing change and weaving digital and sustainability into an organization’s DNA to reinvent the business, while forging new alliances and collaborating across industries to meet the changing demands of citizens, employees, investors and legislators.

As a leading provider of consulting, digital transformation and managed services to electric, gas and water utilities globally, we empower our clients to create sustainable businesses capable of meeting those expectations.

Together with our ecosystem of partners, our industry specialists help our clients to identify cost saving opportunities and securely shift operations while safely delivering sustainable, stable energy experiences.

Across the value chain, we help Utilities to take charge of the energy transition and drive positive change for their business, society, and the planet.


Powering distribution for the energy transition

Distribution businesses are facing looming disruption as the energy transition progresses. In fact, most distribution executives are already seeing some level of disruption in at least one area of their business operations. What is needed: New approaches and new roles toward a more data-driven, intelligent distribution system with advanced visibility and control at the core.

In the latest edition of our Digitally Enabled Grid research, we explore the tipping points for disruption, outline four areas for delivering this new distribution system and examine the actions needed—now and within the next decade, to lead the charge for change toward a net-zero future.
