Delta-EE: The Energy Transition

Your Strategy Catalyst in the Transition from Old to New Energy

About the service

There will come a time (whether we’re ready or not) when carbon emissions are required to be at zero: the European Union and global governments are pushing for cleaner energy packages, and businesses are having to adjust their focus from pure economic growth to developing carbon-free solutions and services as a result.

While it simply isn’t economically viable for companies to offer solely ‘clean’ solutions in the current climate, the waves being made in new energy technologies and profitable business models promise that this won’t always be the case – and it’s vital that businesses are prepared for this shift if they’re to survive and thrive in the new clean energy landscape.

The world of energy is changing at such a pace that it has become the central focus of any organisation even remotely linked to energy.

Understanding how the energy transition is evolving will be critical to success.

Why Delta-EE?

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Energy Transition

The economic downturn as a result of the pandemic has affected all industries, depressed energy demand, and impacted the whole energy value chain. But what specifically does it mean for the transition from old to new energy?

  1. Digitalisation will accelerate – companies with digital customer channels have been much less affected, with automated processes and connected home propositions, for example, continuing as normal in spite of the disruption presented by COVID-19.
  2. ‘As a Service’ business models will gain more traction – as upfront capital becomes more difficult to source for both businesses and individuals, propositions that operate within a service-based business model, such as electrification of fleets, are well-positioned to mitigate this challenge.
  3. Innovation without a big price tag – the crisis has accelerated the shift in focus from large-scale, expensive innovation projects to rapid, agile and fail-fast approaches. Low-cost innovation will enable companies to keep pushing forward on the transition to new energy.
  4. Another boost for the localisation of energy – one issue that’s been highlighted by the crisis is the fragility of our global supply chains, emphasising the importance of a resilient and decentralised energy supply.

The mood within the clean energy market

Recent developments have shown governments and businesses alike reporting news of, and taking steps suggesting, a continued optimism surrounding the energy transition. Commercially, we have seen;

  1. Positivity – companies that have invested in new energy, such as HVAC controls manufacturers, reported good sales results from last year.
  2. Confidence – while the rise of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) is a bubble likely to pop, it is also evidence of belief in growth potential and momentum, especially in the Electric Vehicle and Energy Storage spaces.
  3. Continuation – oil majors continue to transition their forecourt businesses to EV charging and wider decarbonisation.

What does the current energy crisis mean for the energy transition?

The current response to the energy crisis can be characterised as short term and tactical, largely focusing on:

  • Trying to limit the effect of wholesale energy price rises on customers’ tariffs
  • Securing new and additional sources of natural gas and fossil fuels.

 

This is missing a great opportunity to transform our approach to energy, which will in turn drive the transition. The strategic answers to the crisis are:

  1. Focus on energy bills not energy tariffs – and use energy efficiency, energy insights, electrification (direct and, where appropriate, via hydrogen) and ‘as a Service’ business models to minimise bills
  2. Maximise renewables in all their forms – distributed and behind the meter as well as large-scale.
