There is broad global agreement — inside the energy industry and out — that a shift to renewables is the only way to move forward and meet a growing list of global energy challenges, implementing the range of environmental mitigation measures that are so urgently required.

The Transition to Renewables

Clean, low carbon energy sources

Higher energy efficiency

Wide adoption of electrification and innovation

Integration of energy and digital technologies

For the energy industry, Huawei's Energy Pyramid is proving an efficient and effective digital transformation framework and tool.

Designed to help energy industry enterprises better realize their digital transformation vision and goals, the Energy Pyramid clearly lays out what it is that they need to do to adapt — then thrive.

Huawei Energy Pyramid

  • Have 1 singular vision

    Energy enterprises must have 1 singular vision — transformation is a top-down process that requires a clear plan, based on a specific enterprise's positioning.

  • Create 2 assurance conditions

    They must create 2 assurance conditions. This means that, first, enterprises must build a digital culture, accumulate digital knowledge, and develop digital skills. Only then can they unleash the power of talent and consolidate capabilities through teams and platforms.

  • Implement 3 key processes

    They must also implement 3 key processes. A blueprint must be created, integrating planning, construction, and operations processes to ensure that the vision converts to real-world enterprise value.

  • Construct 2 core driving forces

    Enterprises must construct 2 core driving forces, linking service and technical elements to better seize opportunities.

  • Build 1 digital foundation

    Finally, they must build 1 digital foundation covering connectivity, platforms, data, and intelligence.

5-3-2 Model

Digital transformation inevitably involves huge disruption and can, therefore, appear daunting. But enterprises in the energy industry (as elsewhere), can look to the 5-3-2 model as a guideline that breaks down the key contributors to transformation success.

Huawei Supports the Evolution of the Energy Industry

A Sustainable Low Carbon Economy

Clearly, digital transformation does not rely on a single technology. Rather, it requires a robust digital platform and a healthy ecosystem of skilled, specialist partners. This is what ultimately drives success. And drawing on decades of experience in cloud-pipe-device collaboration, Huawei's platform is the most powerful capability it can offer energy enterprises, along with a full suite of capable global industry partners.

Indeed, collaborating with industry alliances, business alliances, developer platforms, and the open source community, Huawei is already helping global energy enterprises discover and profit from new value in the digital era.
