Widespread direct and indirect electrification will require utilities and energy service providers to satisfy the demands of their customers, investors, and governments.
Just like the fourth industrial revolution brought a wave of products that started with “I” to indicate their intelligence, we expect the accelerated electrification of everything from trucks to cities to meet growing demand while decarbonizing at speed: so E will become the new I.
This ongoing digitization will trigger the transformation of the entire industry. Taking charge of that transition, scaling the progress made thus far and delivering the deep electrification of society required in the next decade is a complex process that will only be possible if technology is central in building a human-centered, responsible business.
Organizations that reinvent themselves as demand-driven digital players by matching operational change with a new culture of collaboration across industries and an expanding ecosystem, and work with both start-ups and big players can take charge and lead the way to the new, net zero world.
