Energy Transition

Supporting oil and gas industry clients by developing an energy transition strategy to communicate and promote their contribution toward energy sustainability

What is Energy Transition and Why is it important?

Energy transition refers to the global shift from traditional, non-renewable energy sources such as coal, oil and gas, to cleaner and more sustainable alternatives such as wind, solar, hydro and geothermal power. This transition aims to address the challenges of climate change, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and mitigate the negative impacts of energy production and consumption on the environment.

Energy transition is important for several reasons. First, the world's reliance on non-renewable energy sources has led to a significant increase in global carbon emissions, contributing to the ongoing climate crisis. By transitioning to cleaner energy sources, we can reduce our carbon footprint and limit the severity of climate change.

Second, energy transition can also help to improve public health by reducing air and water pollution associated with traditional energy production. This is particularly important in urban areas where poor air quality can lead to respiratory problems and other health issues.

Finally, energy transition can also lead to increased economic growth and job creation in the renewable energy sector. As more countries invest in renewable energy, there is a growing demand for skilled workers in areas such as engineering, construction and operations, creating new job opportunities and driving economic growth.

Common Energy Transition Terms

  • Decarbonization
    The process of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2), to mitigate the impacts of climate change.
  • Net-zero emissions
    A state in which a system, such as an organization or a country, emits no more greenhouse gases than it removes from the atmosphere, typically achieved through a combination of emissions reductions and carbon offsets.
  • Carbon capture and storage (CCS)
    The process of capturing carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, industrial processes, or other sources, and storing them underground or repurposing them for other uses, to prevent their release into the atmosphere.
  • Renewable energy
    Energy that is generated from natural resources, such as wind, solar, hydropower, geothermal and biomass, that are replenished naturally and sustainably over time.
  • Energy efficiency
    The use of technology and best practices to reduce energy consumption and waste, without sacrificing comfort, productivity or performance.
  • Green hydrogen
    Hydrogen produced using renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind power, rather than fossil fuels, and considered an important low-carbon energy source for heavy industry and transportation.

Energy Transition Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • What is the timeline for energy transition, and what milestones can we expect to see in the coming years and decades?

    The timeline for the energy transition can vary depending on a range of factors, including political will, technological developments, and public opinion. However, there are some general milestones that we can expect to see in the coming years and decades as the world transitions to a cleaner, more sustainable energy system:

    • Increased use of renewable energy sources: The use of renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and hydropower is expected to continue to grow rapidly over the next decade. This is being driven by falling costs and the development of new technologies that make it easier to integrate these sources into the grid.
    • Acceleration of electric vehicles: The adoption of electric vehicles is expected to continue to grow as battery technology improves, costs decrease and governments implement policies to encourage their use.
    • Reduction of coal and oil: The use of coal and oil for energy production is expected to decline, due to both environmental concerns and the declining cost of renewable energy sources.
    • Emergence of energy storage: Energy storage technology, such as batteries, will become increasingly important in facilitating the integration of renewable energy sources into the grid, and also enabling more flexible energy consumption patterns.
    • Expansion of smart grids: Smart grids will enable more efficient and flexible distribution of energy, as well as greater integration of renewable energy sources and energy storage.
    • Emergence of hydrogen fuel: Hydrogen is expected to play an increasing role in the energy transition, particularly in sectors such as transportation and industry.
    • Greater energy efficiency: Improving energy efficiency will continue to be a key focus, as reducing energy consumption can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save costs.
  • What are the key considerations when developing an energy transition strategy to communicate and promote contributions to the transition to a lower-carbon future?

    Developing an energy transition strategy to communicate and promote how companies contribute to the transition to a lower-carbon future requires a proactive and transparent approach, combined with collaboration, recognition of current industry conditions, identification of opportunities and challenges, and investment in innovation and R&D.
