Looking to shape the future of energy, make an effective transition to a more sustainable, affordable, secure and inclusive energy system, and change the 81% of global energy that is still based on fossil fuels. That is, the same percentage as 30 years ago. This organization has recognized that “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).”
