New forms of energy are leading to growing diversity in the utility business supply chain. Consumers can also be producers and with new sources of fuel entering the mix, there’s huge potential for innovation of traditional business models. Who pays, who gains and how will we benefit? What’s the right balance between market forces and subsidies to ensure new technologies can be commercialized and play their role in the evolution of energy utilities?

The adoption of smart energy solutions is a key goal for many stakeholders, but companies that seek to reduce energy consumption must increasingly consider their complete supply chains. To ensure successful delivery of carbon reduction programmes, the entire supply chain needs to be considered. How can this be audited to ensure that organisations can act responsibly and not in isolated silos?

Building management systems have long helped businesses to optimise the performance of essential systems, such as heating, cooling, and ventilation. These systems can be significant cost centres, as well as contributors to carbon waste. Ensuring the efficient optimisation of these systems is now recognised as a step to both reduce surging energy costs – and to reduce their environmental impact. What are the key steps to take?

Hydrogen has long been seen as a potential source of clean fuel but, despite attracting attention, it has largely failed to make an impact. However, with the EU making hydrogen an important contributor to its net-zero plans, how can we accelerate adoption? What’s the market, how cost-effective is it, and how can a flourishing hydrogen economy be created?
