Energy is one of the biggest challenges the world faces. Every day we take it for granted that plentiful, affordable energy will be available to charge our phones and laptops, heat our homes, cook our food, run medical equipment, keep shops stocked, the list is endless.

However, our growing demand for energy has been accompanied by the release of damaging levels of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

How can we maintain a supply of affordable, secure energy while dramatically reducing carbon emissions? Is the answer to improve our current technology? Develop new technologies? Manage energy demand? The answer lies in all of these.
