Iberdrola is the power company best positioned to benefit from future power utilities developments in the sector, according to GlobalData analysts.

The Spain-based company comes top of the list in a ranking of overall leadership in the themes that matter most among power utilities companies.

These themes, which can be defined as any issues that keep CEOs awake at night, describe technological, macroeconomic and industry-specific challenges that companies are currently facing, as well as the opportunities they create. GlobalData’s Thematic Research ecosystem identifies and tracks these challenges, and how they create the long-term winners and losers of the mining industry.

Iberdrola scored highly in several themes, particularly when it comes to Cybersecurity, Electric Vehicles, ESG and Renewable Energy, where it received top marks of five out of five.

Iberdrola received scores of four for Smart Grid, Energy Storage, Technology Diversification and Augmented Reality; three for Hydrogen; and two for COVID-19 performances.

These scores represent GlobalData analysts’ assessments of the competitiveness of each company regarding a particular theme. They are then weighted based on their importance and used to create the final industry ranking.

Iberdrola is followed in our ranking by Enel, Engie and Electricite de France.
