Challenges facing the Power & Utilities Industry

Companies in the power generation and utility industry are facing a multitude of challenges stemming from the energy transition and the increased scrutiny of environmental impact by investors, consumers, and regulators.

These challenges include the need to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions while ensuring the resilience of their assets and operations to climate change and extreme weather events.

Supporting risk management and financial viability

The growing demand for energy is further complicating matters, with conflicting priorities between reducing emissions and meeting the increasing need for power generation. Aging asset infrastructure is a major concern for power generation companies, as it is more prone to machinery breakdown and business interruption losses.
