We are at the center of unprecedented change in the energy and water industries. Global energy and water issues will shape the 21st century. This shifting landscape will change the way we look at the world, the way we do business and the way we live our lives. Transition: The following, staggering statistic illustrates what is driving this change.
First, a booming population. According to the US Energy Information Agency & UN, our population will exceed 8 billion by 2025. In 1999 we passed the 6 billion mark. Today, our world population sits at just over 7 billion. That’s a billion more people in 12.5 years.
Global demand for water will increase by 22% by 2025. Compound this by the fact that today almost one quarter of the world’s population lives in regions where ground water is being used up faster than it can be replenished. It’s estimated that this is creating quite a business – Over $100 billion will be spent by 2016 per year on water infrastructure, including pipes, pumps, valves and meters. Much of this spend is being attributed to population increases and aging water infrastructure.
Demand for Natural Gas is also on the rise. But let’s consider the state of natural gas and the “Shale Gale”. It’s been said that the US shale gas resources could meet our nation’s gas needs for more than 100 years. This generates huge change in the entire natural gas industry. Of course this also impacts our electricity generation. The amount of clean-burning natural gas to generate electricity is expected to double by 2035.
Global demand for energy will increase by 40% by 2030. As we look at the overall increase in demand for electricity, it’s staggering. Even after some demand cooled with a slackened world economy. However, this is not the one and only crux for change with electric utility industry is contending with. Let’s consider the need to adapt to evolving energy supply sources like Distributed Generation, solar, and possibly EV’s. Then we look at increasing pressures and mandates to move to cleaner forms of generation. All of which require investment in modernizing the grid, none of which is clear how it will be paid for given the reluctance to pass on increased rates to taxpayers. In addition, the overall relationship between the utility and the utility customer will continue to evolve. This generates more change in this period of time, than in the last 30 years combined. Transition: Global demand for energy and water is real and our industry is in the midst of a transformation. The responsible management of these resources and stewardship of our environment will be at the center of this transformation.
We have a long history of providing the technology and talent to move the utility industry towards a more sustainable future.
Itron has:Deployed more than 105 million communication modules globally.More than 8,000 customers in 130 countries.More than 9,500 employees.Had revenues of $2.4 billion in 2011.
They have been called‘workplace divas’1&6, millenials, homo zappiens…even Genys! But some say they even are ‘highmaintenance, high risk and high output’2&7. Theyare strongly team-focused, collaborative, and seekmeaning in work and opportunity to learn..But also:They are now under more financial threatsthan the previous generations since the2008 and 2009 crisisThey have grown up with green issues intotheir society, but there is no evidence that itis actually embedded in their cultureThey are more urban focused, and even morein the future with the growth of urbanisationThey quickly buy into new concepts andideas while new technologies become moreaffordable, and invade our market at a fast pace
Growing older work force in many countries putting a lot of demand on gen y. Europe, US and some parts of Asia are witnessing a greying population.They are normally highly educated and skilled workforce and is essential for companies to move up the value chain.
Characteristics of Gen Y
96% - sustainable, 56% flexible,, 79% -mobileBest Buy launched theResults-Only Work Environment (ROWE) program, where employees in participating departments are allowed to work virtually anywhere, anytime, as long as they successfully complete their assignments on time. This shift increased productivity 41% at headquarters and decreased turnover by as much as 90%, according to Ferris’ Four Hour Work Week. Google designated 20% of employees’ paid time as time to work on creative personal projects. The company also offers unlimited fruit, Luna Bars and Vitamin Water, a gym, and playroom to keep people energized and to take breaks when needed. But such programs are still the exceptions to the rule.
