Energy companies across the globe are continuously facing major issues relating to price fluctuations and a decline in demand for crude oil, due to the precarious global economic scenario. However, with the growth in population and improvement in living standards, the demand for energy is expected to witness an upward trend. The demand for energy is further fuelled by the development of urban infrastructures and the migration of people from rural to urban areas. Kables survey shows that energy companies are expected to make a substantial investment in ICT in 2015, owing to the increasing need for an intelligent electronic networking of all the components of the energy system.

Key Findings
Kables survey shows that enterprises in the energy sector are expected to make reasonable investments in ICT in order to reduce operational costs, increase efficiency, and support intelligent load management while simultaneously adhering to environment protection goals.
The survey illustrates that energy companies are primarily investing in the core domains of software and hardware, owing to the increasing need to boost productivity and mitigate costs by implementing smart grid technology.
Moreover, the hardware budget of energy companies is primarily dominated by network and communications equipment and clients, while software licenses and SaaS (software as a service) led the software budget of energy companies.

ICT investment trends in energy presents the findings from a survey of 130 energy companies regarding their Information and Communications Technology (ICT) investment trends.
