Innovation in the #Energy space - a chat with Kevin O’Donovan (aka @Kevin_ODonovan)

I have known today's guest Kevin O'Donovan for several years now. Kevin has always been at the bleeding edge of what's happening in the Energy sector.

The energy sector today is a hotbed of innovation (no, really!), well it has had to become a hotbed of innovation what with the rise of renewables, the shift to storage, and the digitisation of energy grids.

Kevin and I discussed these trends in this episode, along with real-world uses of blockchain in the energy sector, the use of drones and artificial intelligence, the seismic shifts in the sources of supply, and the way technologies are changing the demand profile amongst other interesting topics.

Kevin is the founder of the boutique technology consultancy company, A Bit of This & That ... he has been evangelizing how new technologies can transform the way we do things throughout his career. Kevin has a proven track record of 'bridging the gap' between the capabilities a new technology can bring and the practicalities of bringing that technology to market. He has held senior leadership Technical Sales & Sales Management roles at Compaq, HP and most recently at Intel, where he was Intel’s Worldwide Sales Director for the Energy Industry.
