For decades, the global energy sector has been in a state of flux, but the direction in which investment is surging has become increasingly clear; electrification, the switch-over to renewables and accelerating innovation in clean energy technologies.
After years of public subsidy and support for alternatives to fossil fuels, renewables producers are scaling up, their technologies are improving, and costs of production are falling.
We take a look at some the most important trends in the Energy industry today, and those we think will power the sector in the future:
- Clean energy: Wind, solar, tidal and hydrogen
- Energy storage
- Decentralisation of national grids
- Carbon capture
