Did you know?
The EU has set itself a 20 percent energy savings target by 2020. This is roughly equivalent to turning off 400 power stations. But providing a clean reliable energy supply is a tough challenge. One that requires innovative thinking on balancing supply and demand.

Succeeding with a rapid energy transition that decouples carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from economic development is key to the fulfillment of all the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Understanding this energy transition is critical for businesses, investors, and regulators. A more efficient use of energy is one of the most important defining features of the energy transition.
