What EY can do for you

A new energy world demands new capabilities. Power and utility companies must act now to reap the rewards of a rapidly changing energy ecosystem.

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are proliferating across the energy value chain. By 2025, more than 50% of power and utility companies will be spending more on automating operations with an emphasis on edge, AI and ML technologies.1

  • Distributed generation is accelerating. Self-generating power has already achieved cost parity with grid-delivered electricity in some regions.

  • Electric vehicle (EV) sales are expected to surpass those of vehicles powered by internal combustion engines in Europe and China by 2028 and 2033 respectively.

  • More engaged, sophisticated customers are increasing their participation in an interconnected energy ecosystem.

  • Frequent, and unpredictable, regulatory changes create challenging operating conditions.
