    The energy transition: How decentralization, digitalization, and decarbonization are impacting energy consumption

    The energy transition: How decentralization, digitalization, and decarbonization are impacting energy consumption

    In our present energy environment, we're witnessing a significant shift from conventional fossil fuels to renewable sources—changes significantly driven by data. Even though green technology has been around for some time, it's only recently reached cost equilibrium. Furthermore, with digital connectivity, we're now able to adjust to changing weather conditions impacting supply and demand in real-time. 
     

    So, the question becomes: how can forward-thinking energy organizations leverage these advancements? How can they embrace the opportunities ushered in by the '3 D's—decentralization, decarbonization, and digitalization—and apply these at scale?   



    With the appropriate tools and technology accessible, we believe these transformations offer more than challenges; they bring significant opportunities for innovation and growth. 



    Hear three Credera energy experts (Benjamin Gilbert, Managing Director based in London, Aaron Grotzinger, Partner based in Houston, and Mike Duffy, Principal Architect based in Houston) discuss this topic in greater depth.



    Show outline:


    Intro
    3:30 – What does “the energy transition” actually mean? 
    7:10 – The 3D’s (decentralization, digitalization, and decarbonation) impact on supply and demand of energy  
    14:20 - Technological advancements that will positively impact the supply side of the energy sector 
    18:15 – How is demand for energy evolving 
    24:10 – Balancing demand with cost reduction and customer satisfaction elements  
    33:15 – Activities to encourage consumer adoption of new trends in the UK 
    42:20 – Key questions technology leaders should consider when assessing readiness and progress through the energy transition

    In this episode, Shadow Board members Brenda Bernard and Anu Bose sit down with Chris Dean and Helen Kilvington–two of Credera’s UK Board members. The group delve into why the decision was made to set up a Shadow Board, the impact it has on Credera’s culture, and how other organizations who are considering forming a Shadow Board can get started.

    *Note: Since the recording of this episode, Chris Dean's title changed to Credera’s Global Consulting CEO.
