The energy sector is in transformation: economic power shifts, resource constraints, technological advancements, population growth, rapid urbanization, industrialization of emerging economies, energy consumption levels, power generation capacities, as well as environmental challenges and resource shortages are all global trends that are having a powerful influence on the sector.

In a world where we cannot count on unlimited access to energy and the question of climate change is becoming increasingly important, how we produce, process, distribute, and use energy – ensuring accessibility to affordable and clean energy – has become one of our greatest challenges. To adapt to inevitable changes, ensure sustainable energy systems, and mitigate climate change, governments and businesses alike must identify and understand their implications, improve energy efficiency, foster renewable power generation, and achieve exceptional environmental performance, all while implementing innovative strategies and business models to ensure a secure and reliable energy supply.
