Responsible Policies for Renewable Energy Development

September 7, 2018

The electric power industry is in a period of disruption and transformation driven largely by aging generation and grid infrastructure; declining costs for new generation resources; advances in technology, especially renewable energy and battery storage; and changing customer demands. Together, these factors have the potential to irrevocably change the electric power system, and because of this, today’s energy providers are in a position to fundamentally remake the nation’s electric system into a smarter, cleaner, more advanced grid.

Scaling up the American wind industry

whitePaper | January 23, 2023

Since its inception in the 1980s, the wind industry has established itself as a critical source of clean, renewable energy – a role it must maintain into the future. Going forward, the continued growth of the global wind industry will prove ever more important, with DNV estimating that 5.6 terawatts of onshore wind energy and nearly three terawatts of offshore wind must be generated to achieve a “pathway to net zero” scenario by 2050

Green H2 investments from buzz to Boom

whitePaper | September 18, 2022

Decarbonising our societies and economies is arguably the biggest challenge of this century. However, large parts of industry, agriculture or sea transport cannot be decarbonised directly with green electricity. Green hydrogen is therefore key to bringing their CO2 emissions to net zero. As this view becomes increasingly established, green H2 project announcements are skyrocketing. Consequently, green hydrogen is also gaining in importance for investors.

Breach Protection For Energy Companies

whitePaper | October 4, 2022

Business Challenge Widely classified as critical infrastructure, energy companies traditionally relied on the inaccessibility of their core technology environment to protect against threats. Today, energy companies are focusing on grid modernization, increasing connectivity between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) to provide myriad operational benefits and efficiencies. The environment has expanded to remote endpoints and networked devices used across the entire supply chain to improve collaboration, access and control. This interconnectedness, however, opens energy companies to considerable risk
