• Capturing the opportunity of renewable energy

    How can you optimise your power system by utilising renewables?

    Rethinking Energy in Southeast Asia

    By front-loading the deployment of renewables, Southeast Asian countries can accelerate decarbonisation and unlock myriad benefits. Our report modelled the future power systems in Vietnam, the Philippines and Indonesia, revealing a technically and commercially feasible roadmap to net zero. It's time to #ShapeOurFuture.

Power system modelling

Around the globe, the energy market landscape is in transition, largely due to the rapidly decreasing cost of renewables. Major players are moving towards more flexible and sustainable energy systems with a rapidly increasing share of renewable energy, declining inflexible baseload generation, and a wider application of energy storage technology.

What does an optimal power system look like? The answer varies for each country, city and customer. Read the white papers on power system optimisation for various countries below.

The energy landscape is in transition towards more flexible and sustainable energy systems. We envision a 100% renewable energy future.

Europe's Energy Future

Accelerate renewables to tackle energy costs and increase energy independence. The modelling shows a clear positive impact on reducing Europe’s exposure to the gas market, its carbon emissions and the cost of electricity - leading to lower bills for consumers.

Africa has the potential to leapfrog to the newest energy technologies

Despite the diversity of the African countries, the ingredients of the energy transition are the same for every nation. Renewable energy, supported by flexible balancing capacity, is the most effective way to replace inflexible generation, reduce energy costs, increase energy access, and improve reliability.

South Africa

Flexible gas: an enabler of South Africa's energy transition

This paper looks at both the adequacy of South Africa’s proposed energy crisis mitigation measures and the role that gas power plays in this context along with providing a view on how gas power can support South Africa’s energy transition to 100% renewables.


Nigeria leading Africa to net zero

Nigeria has set some of the most ambitious decarbonisation targets in Africa. The country seeks to take the lead in climate action and aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060 whilst also meeting the nation’s growing energy needs and offer universal access to electricity to its population. How can the country achieve this?


Planning Mozambique's optimal power system expansion

Mozambique has the largest power generation potential in the entire Southern African region thanks to its vast and largely untapped gas and renewable energy resources. Despite this huge generation potential only around 40% of its population had access to electricity in 2021. How can the country achieve electricity for all optimally?
