Growing demand for affordable, reliable and cleaner energy

Innovation is essential to meet global energy demand.

ESG performance will increasingly tie to corporate returns and management compensation.

Renewable energy sources such as wind and solar are increasingly cost-effective, growing their share of the overall energy supply mix.

Innovative technologies that drive the Energy Transition must be scaled to achieve global market impact.
