Digitalisation Is Transforming the Renewable Energy Sector

Following two decades of ongoing innovation and investments in renewable energy, solar and wind are now the most sustainable and cost-effective choice in most areas of the world.

Over the next decade, we expect to see even more growth, driven by rising energy demands and decreasing supply costs, and a consolidation of the sector as it continues to mature.
In addition, building and maintaining energy assets is becoming more complex due to tightening regulations, diversifying portfolios and increasingly stringent grid requirements. Now more than ever before, renewable energy investors, operators and developers need a long-term technology partner with both local expertise and global reach. 

3E, founded in 1999 after initially forming part of IMEC, is a worldwide technology & SaaS company in solar and wind that has projects in more than 100 countries. In 2010, we connected the first renewable energy plant to our digital analytics platform and now have more than 10 GW of connected assets. With more than twenty years of industry experience, 3E has proven itself as a bankable partner for digital data and analytical services, combined with technical expertise in successfully engineering and operating solar and wind plants.
