The energy and environment industry is undergoing rapid transformation from a static and conventional system to the fluid and dynamic Internet of Energy. Renewables are a significant portion of the world’s energy production, with rapid growth of the last decade spurring advanced solutions in grid technologies and energy storage. Nevertheless, fossil fuels continue to dominate much of the world’s power portfolio, from the adherents and detractors of fracking for oil and gas, to the continued high volume of coal used in key global regions. Services to the industry are rapidly evolving to leverage the influx of information from the Industrial Internet, creating new solutions and business models such as advanced predictive maintenance, optimized generation and storage, innovative energy efficiency solutions and X-as-a-Service. And all of this is driven by the push and pull of increasing demand for cleaner air and water alongside the need for more power and energy.
Frost & Sullivan works closely with the world’s largest OEMs, utilities, service providers and IT firms to help them find the opportunities in this sea of change. Our experts and consultants constantly engage with markets from oil and gas to electricity, grids to homes and buildings, and the critical needs for power, water, and environmental solutions across all sectors of the global economy.
