There’s a famous saying, “never let a crisis go to waste”. The current energy crisis – while having a terrible impact on many customers – gives the energy sector a golden opportunity to get in shape for the energy transition.

Electricity distribution networks will increasingly come under the spotlight as the energy transition gathers pace.  Distribution networks are entering a brave new age.

European Utility Week in Paris this year saw over 18,000 visitors cross its doors. We had our own stand there, where we met clients new and old, and we presented on two of the hottest topics in new energy at hub sessions: electric vehicles and demand-side flexibility. Following the event, the team decided to summarise...
Having the right approach to installation and maintenance capability will be critical to ensuring new energy success
