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

This whitepaper was originally published in November 2021 and was updated in March 2022.

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.
