A number of factors are driving increasing interest in energy networks (electricity & gas transmission and distribution):
forecast growth in the demand for energy globally; the need to support new low-carbon generation capacity; the need to replace dated infrastructure to improve demand management (smartgrids & smartmeters); regulatory pressure in some jurisdictions to separate transmission, generation, supply and distribution businesses and increasing investor appetite for a stable regulated income stream.
