Tech Trends 2017 and the power industry
Disrupting the utility
Digital has profoundly disrupted businesses over the years and utilities are no exception to this. But, the question is, which technologies really have the potential for utilities to yield a competitive advantage?
Right from virtualization to machine intelligence, blockchain, and dark analytics, this report analyzes the trends that could disrupt utilities in the next 18-24 months. While experimenting with new trends is a high-stakes endeavor, there’s no sitting on the sidelines when it comes to some of these trends.
Cutting through the hyperbole to identify those most critical and disruptive innovations is particularly important for utilities. To realize that potential, utilities should become a “kinetic enterprise” where the only constant is change.
Deloitte and WindEurope
Exploring the impact of wind energy on the European economy
Wind energy transitioned from a niche technology to an industrial sector in the last decade, making Europe a leader in wind energy and providing clean, competitive and reliable energy. This has yielded significant benefits to the European economy by generating revenue to local communities, creating numerous job opportunities and reducing Europe’s fuel import dependency.
However, the increased international competition in wind energy, together with local content requirements and supply chain constraints, have limited the growth potential of European wind turbines, risking the existing jobs and positive trade balance that wind energy has brought. How can the European governments respond to revive the local markets and preserve economic benefits?
This report, developed by Deloitte Spain and WindEurope, examines policies and measures that are needed to ensure that Europe gets the most out of wind energy. It details the economic footprint of the wind sector from 2011 to 2016 to inform the discussions on Europe’s energy future as part of the Clean Energy Package.
