About Us

The Energy & Utilities Project entitled Shaping a New Era in Energy, is a thought leadership initiative by mThink and IBM Global Business Services, highlighting the many perspectives covering technology directions, and the impact of the new energy value chain and how it applies to these pressing challenges. Volume 9 highlights innovation as a critical component for utilities companies as they come to grips with today’s challenges; conserving scarce resources as global demand skyrockets, reducing pollution, minimizing the environmental impact of our activities, and enabling safe and renewable alternative sources of energy.

The Energy & Utilities Project consists of a boardroom-quality book and a dynamic Web portal. Utilized as a decision-support tool, this project uncovers issues and trends so that senior executives can evaluate technology to make informed choices. In addition to overall strategy, the edition provides thought-provoking perspectives on various technology directions, as well as the changing operational transformation occurring in the utility business model.

These white papers and solution provider profiles are a collection of viewpoints on the practices, tools, technologies, and trends that affect the energy and utility industry today.
