Shaping the Future of Energy

How can an effective transition to a more sustainable, affordable, secure and inclusive energy system be enabled?

Energy consumption and production represents around two-thirds of the global GHG emissions and 81% of the global energy mix is still based on fossil fuels, the same percentage as 30 years ago. 

A transition is needed to a more inclusive, sustainable, affordable and secure global energy system that provides solutions to global energy-related challenges, while creating value for business and society, without compromising the balance of the energy triangle (security and access/environmental sustainability/economic development and growth).

The System Initiative on Shaping the Future of Energy aims to accelerate development of the effective policies, private-sector action and public-private cooperation required to enable the energy transition.

The System Initiative Stewardship Board has identified four priorities: 

  1. Providing clarity on the energy transition in different contexts and geographies

  2. Identifying and enabling the means required to achieve these transitions

  3. Contributing to the design and development of the policies, market systems and technology enablers that can effectively deliver required change

  4. Understanding and addressing the societal consequences of the energy transition
