Net zero is a once in a generation opportunity to transform the energy system. This high-level report, in association with Microsoft and Accenture, explores how digital technology and partnership working can help the sector accelerate and scale up to deliver the transition affordably.

The report explains Microsoft and Accenture’s new integrated five-pillar approach to decarbonisation, which addresses the need to maximise the value of new and existing generation and distribution infrastructure and balance the system through greater flexibility, both at national and local levels.

Using this integrated approach Microsoft and Accenture are helping utilities go deep on sustainability and the transition to net zero.

The strategy aims to:

  • Demonstrate how partnership working and open data can drastically accelerate innovation and develop solutions that are both scalable and repeatable within three to five years.
  • Help the energy sector to realise a 20 percent reduction in the cost of connecting generation, storage and load within three to five years through innovative approaches to network design, construction and operation.
  • Help the sector to deliver a 25 percent reduction in the levellised cost per megawatt hour of grid-scale renewables by 2025.
  • Explain why new skills sets and culture change is key
