The future is now.

The UK’s Energy requirements are high on the government’s agenda, with policy under constant review making for a continuously transitioning market. The pressure posed by net zero targets and climate emergency declarations, the rapid decentralisation and digitalisation of the sector, changes or removal of subsidies, and the emergence of new transformative technologies all require a strategic response.

In the face of these challenges it is exciting to see the emergence of multi-faceted projects coming together, involving renewables, battery storage, and EV charging that are considering the increasing importance of data in energy applications.  Change affects all industry players from energy companies to developers and consumers, bringing opportunity as well as risk.
