The world’s energy future is being shaped by the dual challenge of climate change and growing demand for electricity, with renewable energies set to play a crucial role in this new environment. To become the responsible energy major means taking these realities into account by investing heavily in renewables, and particularly in solar and onshore and offshore wind – three fast growing sources of energy that boast many advantages in that they are abundant, clean, flexible, efficient and competitive.
Why we believe in renewable energies
Electricity will be the energy of the 21st century. Over the next 20 years, electricity demand will increase faster than the demand for energy as a whole and should double between now and 2040. With this in mind, we strive to meet this need by adapting our energy mix to give greater prominence to natural gas and renewables. This approach serves to further our ambition of becoming the responsible energy major.
