Energy & Climate Outlooks
The energy sector is a major contributor to CO2 emissions. The path towards sustainable, low-carbon societies requires us to challenge the status quo and the energy systems our societies currently are built on. Innovative solutions, enhanced regional and global co-operation as well as shifting the way governments issue subsidies provide opportunities for breaking silos and designing inclusive, sustainable and zero carbon societies.
