Decarbonisation is happening across sectors, and although the pace may at times be less than required, the direction of travel is generally the correct one. Industries and businesses are all starting to actively engage with the energy transition in one shape or another. That means there is a role for firms to help other companies clean up their act.
Congratulations to her, enjoy the show!

A sustainable and resilient energy system must incentivise a strong role for demand-side flexibility solutions, says Bertrand Deprez from Schneider Electric
This week, Jan, Michaela and David are joined by Jorge Vasconcelos, chair of New Energy Solutions (NEWES) and part of the Florence School of Regulation. Jorge tells us how electricity market design is essential in getting clean energy to where it is needed
In episode one of Energy Enablers, Siemens Smart Infrastructure's Matthias Rebellius discusses the role digital products can play in advancing the energy transition
EU leaders need to get serious about electrification if Europe is to decarbonise in line with the commitments of the Paris climate agreement and bring about economic benefits for consumers, say signatories of The Electrification Alliance, launched in Brussels this week
Information and communication technology accounts for more than 2% of global greenhouse emissions, as much as all air traffic
Tired of waiting for big energy companies to procure clean energy, energy communities are clubbing together to take advantage of the low prices renewable energy offers
Seeking cheaper alternatives to expensive and time-consuming physical upgrades, grid operators are increasingly turning to digital solutions. While some projects are already underway, slow-changing regulatory frameworks mean the rollout is sluggish
Explosive renewable energy growth in the Netherlands has pushed the densely populated country’s electricity grid to its capacity limit. The innovative Dutch mindset, coupled with desperation over economic growth and low-carbon ambitions, has resulted in a melting pot of grid congestion solutions
Smart buildings are energy-saving, sustainable buildings. Clustered into smart city districts, they play a crucial role in climate protection. The adaptive, open-source technology to make this possible is already available, says Matthias Rebellius of Siemens Smart Infrastructure
Accounting for as much as one-fifth of overall CO2 emissions, industrial clusters are emerging as an attractive target for decarbonisation. With most of the focus on CCS and the hydrogen economy so far, industrial clusters are starting to see their ripples of impact spread further afield
The growing use of modular and prefabricated units in construction promises to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment, but commercialising the practice remains a challenge
In the latest episode of Energy Enablers, Tore Harritshøj from platform provider Spirii talks about how start-ups can navigate the expensive world of the energy transition
