Sustainable Energy Transition
A sustainable energy transition is a driver of positive change
Renewables do not emit greenhouse gas emissions or other air pollutants during operation. Even when accounting for the total carbon footprint over their full life cycle, renewables far outperform coal, oil and gas.
To reach net-zero emission targets by 2050 requires an accelerated energy transition with renewable energy at its core.
