Helping you master transformation in power and utilities

Our Global Power & Utilities Center can help you meet the coming changes and resulting challenges. We have over 3,500 power and utilities professionals worldwide with the broad experience to help you create strategies for future growth.
Key issues shaping the power and utilities environment today include:
- Reshaping the generation mix and renewing aging networks
Faced with ongoing policy pressure to reduce carbon emissions, the sector has an opportunity to reshape the generation mix completely over the next 30 years, through a mix of technologies. But aging infrastructure means major investment decisions must be taken today.
These will have implications across the value chain as networks respond to different demands from generators and suppliers.
Companies are considering how best to react to the introduction of low-carbon generation technologies, with a host of ongoing ‘make or buy’ questions.
Against the over-riding imperative of maintaining security of supply, key challenges include:
- Deciding on the best generation mix for a particular market
- Navigating policy regimes from country to country
- Funding the acquisition or construction of low-carbon generation assets
- Managing the risks of large-scale construction projects
- Engaging with customers over the value of a low-carbon future.
