This item is part of the 2023 Predictions and Anticipated Trends for the Power Industry - January/February, click here for more

After 2022 was another landmark year in the power sector-- geopolitical turmoil resulting in fuel supply and cost concerns, grid resilience and reliability taking focus in response to natural and manmade events, the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, the laboratory achievement towards nuclear fusion, and more-- it seems that the year to come is only poised to build upon these developments. While there's value in looking back, and we have enjoyed the Energy Central Community doing so over the recent weeks, now is the time to shift our focus forward and anticipate the major stories that will require our attention and efforts in 2023. 

Your access to Member Features is limited.

New technologies will continue to be deployed. Public policy leaders from the international down to the local stage will push aggressive goals for clean energy and grid upgrades. A constant watch will continue on power prices and availability. Equity and justice will continue to make more inroads in all energy and climate discussions. 

And that's just the beginning. 

What we want to hear, though, is how the industry leaders and experts in our power professional community anticipate 2023 will play out.  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: "Trends & Predictions 2023."
