Energy Transition Challenge: Searching for New Energies
Energy fuels both the global economy and our everyday lives, and with a global improvement of living standards and population growth, we are seeing the continued rise in demand for energy. The big challenge is how to provide much more energy while at the same time significantly reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. This is what we call the energy challenge.
Working towards a low carbon future
We recognise the significance of climate change, along with the role energy plays in helping people achieve and maintain a good quality of life. A key role for society – and for Shell – is to find ways to provide much more energy with less carbon dioxide. This global energy transition therefore requires a huge undertaking – producing and consuming energy in a different way. We need to design our economies, communities and lives to thrive on these energy systems.
