Energy & Utilities

The last two years have borne witness to significant changes in the Energy & Utilities sector, with:

  • The fall in oil prices leading upstream and downstream operators to look for ways to increase efficiency and reduce costs
  • The cost of solar power generation reaching near - grid parity
  • Innovations in smart grid technologies and IoT presenting compelling RoI cases to justify OpEx by power companies
  • The fall - out of the Fukushima disaster being increasing opposition to nuclear power generation
  • A stronger push away from Coal by World powers prompted by UN climate change commitments
  • Innovations in shale extraction tilting the balance of net energy importers and exporters
  • Large Oil & Gas discoveries in Africa creating new (potentially major) Energy clusters
  • The emergence of Big Data and Analytics as a driver of cost - reduction and value - creation across Energy & Utilities

The above has led to strong demand for personnel with specific skills that are in short supply overall and, perhaps, not always readily available in the locations where they are needed.
