In the beginning was energy!
The use of electricity gives a convenient way to transfer energy.
Without electrical power there would be no manufacturing, no transport, no communications, no entertainment as we know it today.
Electricity is not just economics, services or even fun: it is, for millions of families, a matter of joyful, fulfilled new life or potentially, heart-wrenching pain and regret should it not be ready and available on time.
In fact, electricity has become a necessity of modern industrialized societies. If electricity stops flowing, it is an event that usually signals disaster.
Countries that lack power – and the infrastructure to deliver it - cannot attain a proper standard of living for their people. Millions are living without reliable water and food supply and proper medical care. In fact, the struggle to exploit limited energy resources has been with us from time immemorial – with failure to communicate well has sometimes leading to conflicts.
And more recently, mankind has realised there is another challenge to be overcome – the battle against global warming and climate change.
Tens of thousands of specialists are working around the globe to find innovative solutions to global warming, and achieve a better, fairer life for mankind with the resources available.
Advanced engineering solutions, such as high efficiency turbines and clean coal technology, mean even conventional, carbon-based generation systems can be safely utilised well into the 21st century.
Helped, of course, by the latest, more efficient, affordable renewable and clean technologies.
Improved safety systems and iv generation reactors mean nuclear energy can be used to generate vast quantities of reliable, carbon-neutral, base-load electricity with infinitessimal risk of incidents.
Meanwhile, research teams are pushing the frontiers of science ever forward, with future technology such as fusion and thorium reactors.
Approaching the challenge from the other direction – the development of smart metering and smart grid systems means demand-side management is becoming ever more important in managing assets and infrastructure.
And closer to people's everyday lives, electric cars are gaining popularity.
Across five continents, dedicated teams at kpmg are looking at the complexities of the entire energy sector.
