Advancements in technology

Energy efficiency, demand-side management and smart grid technology head the list of technological developments that will shape the energy industry for years to come.

Indeed the spread of the distributed generation model that has so shaken the traditional centralised way of understanding the energy business is dependent on technology.

How PwC can guide you on the adoption of new energy sector technology
