Session 1 – Inevitable changes – Drawing the map

Although our increasingly networked world is going through an explosion of connectedness and an exponentially increasing pace of change with dizzying speed, the requirements on our public utilities regarding safety, security of supply and efficiency not only have not diminished, but on the contrary, are increasing and will keep rising further! In such a shifting world, it is virtually impossible to navigate without the right map, or at the least you will end up with very low efficiency. So mapping and understanding the key drivers, their impact, their interconnectedness and interdependence is key to a more successful and sustainable future. Because the question is no longer “if”, but “when” these changes occur.
