Disruption of Power Sector:

Digitalization, Decarbonization and Decentralization

There are fundamental changes underway in the energy and power sector that will affect how we develop, design and build infrastructure. Increasingly, energy consumers want to control their own destiny and have a role in production – becoming prosumers – across residential, commercial and industrial markets. The power system of today was designed with centralized generation facilities pushing power out in one direction to consumers – we are asking that system to perform in ways it was not designed to do. How do we evolve our approach to building and operating energy and infrastructure to meet these macro-level changes?
