Meeting demand with conventional power
A transition to low carbon energy is under way, but traditional oil, coal and gas remain important to global power supply, particularly for developing nations. Owners and operators in the conventional power sector are under pressure to keep pace with market demand and ensure reliability and security of supply by maintaining or improving output and efficiency. This must be balanced with effective cost control in production and the reduction of environmental impacts.
Investors, owners and operators are evolving their business strategies to drive output and efficiency while enabling a more sustainable, low carbon future. As they look to the latter, organisations are increasingly considering divesting and diversifying their plants and decarbonising production processes. This can present new opportunities for the sector.
