Electric vehicles are coming, but their impact will be evolutionary not revolutionary

The replacement of the internal combustion engine with alternatively-fueled vehicles makes for compelling political sound bites, but reality is quite different. We are far from generating enough renewable energy even to meet today’s base load electrical demand. Changes in transport fuel demand will come incrementally rather than suddenly and because the slow pace of change wont support major capital projects focus is on intelligent value chain optimization.

Delivering better decisions faster for planning, scheduling and trading of energy

Across organizations, decision-making should be about seeking to improve performance. The challenge is that decisions comprise of different layers of factors, all on different timescales, each with different levels of uncertainty and varying degrees of impact. In the decision-making process, four key areas are being improved: data, situational awareness, analytics, foresight. New technology is advancing and interconnecting these areas for faster decisions with reduced uncertainty.
