Meeting the increasing demand for energy poses many challenges: increasing efficiency, developing new supplies and safeguarding the environment. Technology will play a critical role in meeting these challenges.
If we look at Abu Dhabi’s National Vision 2030, in its core, we find sustainable economic development, reliable energy supplies and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
Energy is about people, about economies and about development.
Energy efficiency is one of the largest and lowest cost ways to extend our world’s energy supplies and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
In 2040, what types of energy will the world use, and how much? How will new technologies, efficiencies and policies impact the market?
These are some of the questions that we set out to answer in our Outlook for Energy: A View to 2040.
Few people realize that energy is a high-tech industry. Over time, new technologies open up new energy sources and also enable more efficient uses of energy.
