The need for a balanced approach to ensure energy sustainability

About this webinar

Energy sustainability is not just about meeting environmental standards, including low carbon emissions, important though that is. It is also about ensuring that energy resilience can be maintained to ensure security of supply at an affordable price. An energy transition is underway, which is moving forward at different speeds in different regions depending in part on each country’s commitment and political drivers, linked to each country’s access to national and external energy sources. However, unless proper consideration is given to establishing a balanced energy mix there is the potential for security of supply to be badly compromised, which can readily spread to become a larger problem. These interlinked factors are presented and discussed, drawing on the situation that has arisen in the European Union as a cautionary example.
