The world is in a race for energy, reflected by commodity prices that are at or near record levels across the world. Earlier this year the phrase in the U.K. was “do I heat, or do I eat?” More recently the U.K. government has provided recommendations to its citizens to “heat the human not the home.” While Europe is feeling the brunt of exorbitantly high energy prices, the rest of the world is feeling the pinch as well.
So, what is the answer in navigating this global challenge that will likely not get significantly easier in the short term? According to the United Nations, the global population is expected to grow 20% and reach 9.7 billion people by 2050. Sure, the answer can be to add energy supply in a variety of forms or manage demand and make energy consumption more efficient and sustainable. There is a common thread with both paths -- the need for information and the right technology to manage it.
