Power and Utilities
Worldwide demand in the energy market continues to grow, with developing markets consuming energy as fast as it can be produced.
Major expansion and upgrade programs are underway in India, the Middle East, and other parts of the world. Most of our European clients are trying to meet goals for reduction in greenhouse gas emissions – spurring investment in renewables as well as transmission and distribution systems.
