The major technology themes impacting the power sector in 2022 will be artificial intelligence (AI), big data, blockchain, cybersecurity, cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR), robotics, electric vehicles (EVs), and smart grid while the major macroeconomic themes impacting the power sector in 2022 will be COVID-19, China impact, and environmental, social, & governance (ESG). Furthermore, the major industry themes impacting the power sector in 2022 will be carbon emissions, renewable energy, energy transition, distributed generation, hydrogen, energy storage, and predictive maintenance.

The Power Predictions 2022 report identifies the top 20 themes that will impact the power sector in 2022. For each theme, the report also offers a series of predictions and aids in identifying winners and losers.

Artificial Intelligence

In the power sector, the use of AI is key to becoming data-driven. The use of AI can create huge amounts of insightful data, which can help utilities achieve situational awareness, make better decisions, and forecast more accurately. Improved management and transparency will witness significant growth in 2022. Large utilities will continue to develop their in-house capabilities, hiring machine learning (ML) and data science specialists More AI-specific start-ups will persist in growing the list of AI-focused partnerships in the power sector.

Cloud Computing

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has pushed businesses/power utilities to opt for work from home, and this is when cloud computing solutions have played a role in maintaining business continuity. In 2022 as well, cloud computing will continue to witness rapid growth and adoption in the power sector. Early cloud adopters have taken advantage of these turbulent COVID times, while the ones who were so far apprehensive about adopting cloud computing are now planning to deploy cloud computing solutions. The potential to enable power utilities to work remotely without affecting efficiency is one of the many benefits involved with cloud computing.

ESG

Consumers’ attitude towards the environment has relatively strengthened owing to health concerns. Scrutinizing this, power utilities have learned how a health menace with relatively uneven direct impacts has interconnected with global networks to create economic crises across the globe. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak is driving the urgent need for evaluation of issues in the power sector that have potentially been underplayed, including environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policies. Managing ESG issues is critical for power companies in 2022.
