The Transformation(s) of Power

by Shayle Kann

The power sector is constantly evolving, but rarely in modern history has it seen such rapid change as it faces today. The interaction between technological, economic and political forces is catalyzing what could become the most dramatic transformation of electricity in the past century.

We identify four primary trends shaping and directing this transformation globally. This report briefly outlines each trend, notes its global status, and identifies key questions it invokes across the energy sector. But this is just the beginning; these trends will drive our power and renewables research agenda moving forward. We will compile and analyze data, forecast future developments, and ask difficult questions about how each of these trends might shape the future of power throughout the world.
