What a year 2021 has been in the power industry-- but as Energy Central Community members know, there's really no time for looking backwards, as the utility sector is sure to continue its unprecedented rate of evolution in 2022 and beyond. Whereas major utilities were once chastised for being too slow to move and not embracing innovation, we're currently working amid one of the most transformative industries of all. 

Clean energy transition, the advent of digital technologies, the changing relationship of utilities and customers, an increasing focus on the regulations and markets guiding it all, and so much more: the trends of today are shaping the utility of tomorrow, and there's really no time to catch your breath of you want to stay on top of it all. 

Your access to Member Features is limited.

With that in mind, Energy Central seeks to continue our tradition of asking the industry insiders in our community to weigh in on the expected trends that will guide the near-term future with our annual predictions & trends special issue. 

We're looking for you, the Energy Central Community, to participate in our latest Special Issue: "Power Industry 2022 Trends & Predictions."

We want to hear your forecasts, predictions, and insights for the coming year in the power sector.  This upcoming Special Issue presents a unique opportunity for you to share your expectations for 2022 with peers in the industry and perhaps even help kickstart conversations that help you and others uncover new potential solutions and opportunities. 

Below are a few topic prompt ideas:

  • What new technologies do you expect to make waves anew in 2022? 
  • How will the policy landscape -whether local, state, federal, or even international- drive the trends for the coming year? 
  • What pivots do you expect to be taken after learning from past successes and failures to steer into 2022? 

With your submission to the January 2022 Special Issue on 'Power Industry 2022 Trends & Predictions,' we invite you to consider the above questions and more and participate in the group knowledge sharing and brainstorming process only available via the Energy Central Community.
