Transformation through technology

Renewable energy is on the rise, with wind and solar expected to provide more than half of all new global electricity generation between now and 2040. Technological advancements are driving the adoption of electric vehicles and battery storage. Investment in decentralised networks and microgrids is accelerating, and new finance mechanisms are emerging. Traditional energy security risks remain on the radar, but new hazards – from cybersecurity to extreme weather – pose new challenges.

Fresh thinking and flawless execution

Energy demand is expected to rise by 1.3% each year to 2040, according to the International Energy Agency. The challenges of cutting carbon emissions and costs, while moving to carbon neutrality, fuelling growing economies and bringing electricity to the estimated 850 million people without power is very real. Balancing these competing priorities demands holistic fresh thinking and flawless execution – which is why clients around the world turn to RLB.
