Utilities around the world are facing unprecedented challenges in the wake of the energy transition and the move towards a carbon-neutral economy. All parts of the value chain are under growing pressure; the retail segment faces competing cost structures, grids are becoming decentralized and face volatile supply and demand, production operates in a fast-changing regulatory environment, and trading experiences high volatility, market consolidation, and a shift towards less carbon-intensive commodities.​ View our content to learn more about these industry challenges and strategic solutions.
