Securing sufficient energy sources, in order to support continued economic growth in the face of a growing scarcity of fossil fuels, price volatility, regulatory uncertainty and increasing environmental challenges, will demand greater initiative from the market with regard to its approach to energy generation, transmission and distribution.
Assuming there are no major shifts in governments’ policies, statistics from the International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook indicate that global energy demand is predicted to increase by 40 per cent by 2030.
