To shape the energy transition.

The global energy transition is imperative to prevent climate change and achieve sustainable growth. Well-informed policies and strategies are a valuable instrument to achieve this transition and promote a fair process that can maximize the benefits for everyone – countries, regions, industries, businesses, and individuals. Indeed, the energy transition must be seen as an opportunity to create jobs, improve the livability of cities as well as overall societal welfare.
