Access to energy is crucial for a well-functioning and efficient society. The energy industry will face significant changes over the coming years. The demand for electrical power will increase considerably, especially due to the electrification of vehicles and industries. At the same time, the importance of renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, water and biofuels is increasing, while the importance of fossil energy sources, such as coal and oil, is decreasing. Additionally, countries’ climate and sustainability policies will be subject to higher standards, including the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement (COP21). This is expressed in, for instance, the EU’s climate package Fit for 55, and increases the complexity within the energy sector.
The energy industry serves as the driving force behind the entire climate transition and is in an expansive stage. This creates new challenges while also opening up new opportunities.
