How Andrew is building a better working world

“There has never been a better time to help EY clients and professionals understand how technology is affecting business models and how power and utility companies should respond.

I work closely with professionals both within and outside of the EY organization to develop thought-leading insights that help harness the benefits of transformation across the sector and, in turn, inform and shape clients’ agendas.

I have developed insights on strategic topics, including the need to accelerate climate action through deep decarbonization and electrification, utility business model transformation, new distribution system operator business models, eMobility, technology and digital innovation in P&U, and sustainability.”
