The energy sector relies on electronics for a smooth transition to efficiency and sustainability


The demand for energy is growing fast, for electricity even faster. To meet the needs of over 9 billion people by 2050, energy production will have to double while at the same time greenhouse gas emissions will have to be drastically reduced. This can only be achieved through a transition from a carbon-based economy towards a sustainable and efficient energy model that is accessible to all on the planet.


A clean definition


In 2004, REEEP, the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Partnership, proposed a definition of sustainable energy as “the provision of energy such that it meets the needs of the future without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable energy has two key components: renewable energy and energy efficiency.”
