Energy

We are specialists in energy and sustainability

Access to energy is crucial for a well-functioning and effective society. As an actor within the energy sector, you and your company have a central role to play in helping create a sustainable society.

The energy sector will be facing considerable challenges over the years to come. The need for electrical power is going to increase enormously, not least due to the electrification of vehicles and industries. Renewable energy sources such as biofuels, hydrogen, wind, solar and hydropower have become more important, while fossil energy sources such as coal and gas are in decline. The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement (COP 21) place sharper requirements on the climate and sustainability policies of nation states, taking the form of initiatives like the EU’s Fit for 55 climate package, and further increasing complexity within the energy sector. The Glasgow Climate Pact (COP 26) has elevated the requirements even further.

The energy sector is the engine of the entire climate transition and thus a sector in the throes of expansion. This poses new challenges but also creates new possibilities.
