Shaping the Future of Energy

Energy is the lifeblood of modern economic and human activity, with most consumed for mobility, by industry and in households. Yet around 1.3 billion people lack access to affordable modern energy, impeding development. While energy enables economic development, it contributes around two-thirds of global GHG emissions and is, therefore, a critical focus area in tackling climate change. Once characterized by slow and steady change, the energy system is now going through significant transformation, driven by a blend of innovation, major policy changes and changing consumer demands.
