Electricity, nuclear and renewables. The current electricity market is teeming with opportunities, due to continuous global liberalisation, resulting in greater competition and reduced prices. Developing countries have opened their doors to foreign investment while the focus on renewable energy infrastructure has also expanded. Companies are now seeking increased efficiency in operations and asset utilisation, and additional revenues from new geographic markets, multi-utility and non-utility operations.
