Affordable and clean energy
Fuelling the energy transformation
It’s 2035 and leading nations are fast decarbonising their economies. It’s a vision for a cleaner, low-carbon, job-secure future.
This is how.
1. Cleaner Generation
There has been a huge increase in electricity from renewables.
2. Scaling up hydrogen
Hydrogen production is rising around the world and is being used for transport and by industry.
3. Energy infrastructure innovation
Energy storage is growing and supporting the transition to low-carbon electricity.
4. Fuelling transport
Electric vehicles are leading the way in transportation thanks to the huge rollout of charging infrastructure.
5. Industrial clusters
Political support and targeted policies have accelerated the commercial deployment of carbon capture over the past decade.
6. Blended heating, natural cooling
Electrification, hydrogen and low-carbon gas, such as biomethane, are all being employed to decarbonise heating.
7. Powerful new revenue streams
Businesses and organisations with large estates have taken full advantage of falling costs to install renewable energy technologies.
8. Agents of change
Digitalisation has given consumers access to information and unprecedented control over energy use.
9. Smarter utilities
Better use of existing assets and smarter deployment of energy resources is unlocking cost savings for customers.
10. One integrated system
Digitalisation is also making operation of the energy grid more efficient.
11. Regulating the transition
Regulation and legislation have been used to support the transition to renewable energy – but wind and solar beat fossil fuels on price, and investors have driven the switch.
12. Accessible, affordable, reliable
Access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services is being made universally available by the falling cost of renewable energy and energy storage.
13. At the local level
Energy transformation has helped to safeguard employment in industrial heartlands by modernising existing industries and providing new skilled jobs.
Together we can fuel the energy transformation.
Access to clean and affordable energy achieves more than just goal
From grey, to blue, to green hydrogen
This is the future
