How Omar is building a better working world
“As the energy landscape shifts, electricity utilities face disruption enabled by technology but powered by the consumer. Both players risk irrelevance unless radical changes are made now to seize a new role in the future energy world. It’s my passion to help companies transition to this new world.”
