Edwin R. Poot is the Founder and CEO of Energyworx EdwinFace

Mr Poot's top 3 predictions for the power sector in 2015 are:

  • Huge increase in cleantech investments, challenging startups to disrupt the decades-old energy market and classic software vendors
  • Driven by falling oil prices and increasing supply growth: an increase in consolidation of companies in the energy sector as they seek to cut costs and improve access to capital
  • Internet of Things adoption is gaining momentum in the energy sector. This will result in increased concerns on network reliability, IT systems & infrastructure resilience, consumer’s privacy and (cyber)security
