Industrial Energy Transition

A range of possible scenarios may play out – doing nothing is the worst possible outcome

An evolution not revolution scenario will require cost efficiency and effective use of capital to compete against others in a gradually declining market.

A Plausible Disruption scenario sees much greater emphasis on renewable electrical energy use, both in industry and by end users.

In either scenario, energy efficiency offers the best ROI for delivering reductions of 10-20%, and reduces the future capex for electrification or carbon capture.
