For 2020? One should expect pretty much continuing trends of the last several years with the one possible wildcard, 2020 being an election year.
Over the last few years, there has been a steady increase in interest in the following, so we can expect more discussions about:
Natural gas and power
“Climate Change”, followed by Block Chain and “Coal-and-the-Power-Industry” remain the greatest expressed interest, albeit declining ones.
For example, regarding Climate Change: Forrester Research in their 2020 tech-related outlook mentions “In 2017, 52% of consumers said they actively consider company values when making a purchase”, and they expect that to rise to more than 55% this year. This can have a direct effect on electric utilities with customers having renewable options.
