Operators across the Energy sector continue to strive for more innovative and efficient methods of generation, operation and delivery.

With liberalisation, deregulation, privatisation, the utilities sector has experienced many changes and demands in recent history and will continue to for the foreseeable future. Increased demand and commercial competition along with the need to maintain and upgrade an ageing and historically under-funded energy and utilities infrastructure, presents common challenges across many different utilities.

The continued importance of environmental issues and the general public’s attention to such issues has resulted in the sector having to operate under increased media attention for sometime. Issues such as sustainability are forcing a greater number of companies to source for more renewable resources. Developments in technology have also eroded some of the natural monopoly aspects of some traditional public utilities.

An extensive and efficient energy and utility infrastructure is an important asset to any nation, but the character of such an infrastructure presents many risks to existing civil engineering projects.
