Main tendencies within the Spanish sector landscape

Energy efficiency and sustainability

Efficiency is an increasingly important factor in terms of competitiveness. In advanced countries it is a requirement of governments and consumers. Many developing countries, so far more flexible are already beginning to regulate.


The proliferation of local solar plants and the advances in storage technologies are favouring the diversity of smaller and more agile energy suppliers with more efficient supply and distribution network. They are small producers who consume their own energy and sell the surpluses.

Service-based business models

Product-based business models increasingly include services as differential and added value, including them more frequently in their core-businesses: engineering services, consulting and analysis… Users value these services more to the detriment of products purchases that are easily substitutable.

Data-based Energy

The digitisation of the energy sector has led to the development of intelligent automation, which is essential for managing distributed energy resources. With Edge Computing, devices can process data closer to where it is created.

Change in the relationship with the consumer

New technologies, such as smart meters, are essential to transform the relationship between customers and their energy use, helping them to know what the actual consumption of their activity is as well as how they can be more efficient and even, advance or prevent dysfunctions.

Wireless remote transmission

It is an area of very active research due to its potential to provide high technology to our daily lives. The use of this technology will spread and the biggest challenges are long-distance wireless charging and the safe deployment of its application to the industry.
