Energy and Utilities

Power ahead in the face of rising costs and complexity.

For energy leaders, it’s about making difficult decisions in an unpredictable environment where the differences are often subtle. This is especially true today as you confront changing regulatory frameworks, aging infrastructure assets, fuel price volatility, and the growing consideration of environmental directions. A secure reliable supply needs to be maintained while still anticipating change. Utilities looking to build for the future must look to a fresh set of business solutions enabled by new digital technologies, sensing devices and software capabilities.

Jonova solutions can help you analyze and implement short term and longer term plans that are consistent with your business goals, complete with excellent visibility to the tradeoffs and risks associated with alternative options.

Industry Challenges:

  • Worldwide demand for raw materials and fuel are causing increased variability and potential long-term increases that may negatively affect project viability
  • Demand may be impacted by alignment of footprints of large industrial users, demand reduction strategies and, in the longer term new technologies such as Plug-in Hybrids
  • New business models like decoupling may incentivize conservation
  • New regulations such as carbon cap-and-trade or carbon tax may drive the need for investments in renewables and clean technology
  • Capital expenditures will be required to upgrade infrastructure
