IEA: Spain’s policy plans set to underpin a successful energy transition – Spain has made considerable progress towards its goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, but future gains need to be supported by stable policies, adequate public financing, and incentives for private investment, according to a new policy review by the International Energy Agency (IEA). Since the IEA’s last in-depth review in 2015, Spain has solved a long-standing problem of electricity and gas tariffs not covering costs, and has closed all its coal mines, allowing the country to prioritise the issue of climate change and align its goals with EU objectives and ambitions. Spain’s 2050 objective for national climate neutrality calls for renewables to provide 100% of electricity and 97% of the total energy mix. The country’s energy policies are centred on massive deployment of renewable energy, energy efficiency, electrification and renewable hydrogen. (from Energy Global)

Creating the ‘Nirvana’ experience to underpin your workflow – Businesses throughout the globe, no matter what the industry, know more than ever that their products and services must be as good as they are perceived to be. It’s a well-known fact that a happy customer will tell a couple of people, whereas a disgruntled customer will tell more than 3x as many. With that in mind, the differentiator in the 21st century between competitors has naturally become customer service. As a consumer myself I’ll regularly shop where I get treated the best – poor experience will stop me going back again, whereas building up a positive experience will in time buy my loyalty. This theory works within businesses too on the internal employee experience side – a happy employee who has what they need to do their job well with all the tools they need to hand (even through a pandemic), will be happier than the one who is struggling to get work done, if for example they have access issues to important information outside the office environment. So, what comes first? It seems to be a regularly debated topic when I speak to everyone around me – a business isn’t a business without customers, but employee retention and happiness is also vital. Interestingly, ServiceNow’s UK-based government customer Ben Davies from DEFRA explains that “ServiceNow CSM (Customer Service Management) has been a morale booster” — so improving the customer experience can help employee happiness. Moving from this theory, what then happens when customer experience AND employee experience are optimised? That’s what we are increasingly calling Nirvana, or the experience economy — an all-round great experience for everyone in your ecosystem, whoever they may be.

Nirvana はヒンドゥー、仏教用語で涅槃とか、至福の聖地という意味。お客様も従業員も両方とも幸せにしないとだめな時代です。
