In March 2017, power generated from the sun and the wind reached a significant milestone in the US. For the first time ever, solar and wind energy accounted for 10 per cent of the country’s electricity generation (8 per cent wind and 2 per cent solar), according the US Energy Information Administration.

It’s 2019 – that’s nearly 2020! It doesn’t seem long ago that the EU was setting what seemed like fairly radical targets for 2020; for decarbonization, for renewable energy use and for energy efficiency.

The pace of digitalisation in energy is increasing rapidly. In fact, global investment in digital electricity infrastructure and software has grown by over 20 per cent annually since 2014.
