Energy

The energy sector is living the turmoil of geopolitical conditions, changing levels of production, stock and reservoir of fossil fuels, low refining capacity etc. Its business relies on a centralised model exploiting finite resources with high power density and geographic concentration.

Decline of high density energy source availability is mining the ‘central model’, while a risky future for fossil energy and slow growth of renewable energy sources with acceptable density and diffusion pose a big challenge for radical and long-lasting innovation of industry, public and user infrastructures, systems and processes.

New cluster models will replace the central paradigm: distributed multi-generation points interconnected in smart grids are the output of transformation process of the energy sector, where major economy, technology and social changes are expected in the long and risky transition phase which needs to be accurately planned and governed.

Distributed eco-energy (systems, processes and infrastructure) closing the circle of local resources can provide the efficient and effective solutions to get over the coming oil peak crisis but impose major changes to business and social communities.

The ability to accurately plan, design, introduce and test new energy, process, system and resource configurations is therefore fundamental in every business, and is the focus of OPUSNET energy innovation.
