Solar Power: Generation & Transmission

The renewables sector is in the spotlight as companies, governments and consumers grapple with issues such as security of supply, environmental impact and affordability. The sector is on a journey of major change, anticipating a world with a much wider range of technologies than at present and where the shape of the industry will continue to change.

Governments are under pressure to meet international and domestic commitments, and companies are seeking to extend their value chain both upward and downward to secure supply and end markets. The traditional boundaries that define the energy industry are becoming blurred as the interdependence of different energy sectors grows and the linkages between utility and technology companies becomes more critical.
