The energy sector landscape

The energy industry has been going through big changes. Here are the main areas that we’ve recognised through extensive research on the topic.


Energy storage refers to the capture and retention of energy in a form that can be accessed and used at a later time. Energy storage technologies are becoming increasingly important as renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power become more widespread, and can help to address issues of intermittency and variability in these sources.

Hot topics within energy storage


Decentralised grids, AKA Distributed Energy Systems (DES), are small-scale power generation systems located close to the point of consumption, which increase energy security, resilience, and access to electricity, particularly in rural or remote areas, while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Hot topics within decentralised grids


Several factors are currently shaping energy production, including the transition to renewable energy sources, increasing demand, energy storage technologies, and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as well as technological advancements, government policies, and changing consumer preferences.
