Energy systems power growth in all economies. We are on the cusp of a clean energy future. Although fossil fuels will continue to form an important part of economic growth for the near future, a shift to the low carbon economy means a rapid scale-up in new and established alternative power sources and technologies.

Rapidly falling costs are increasing the market share of renewable energies. Greater investment in energy efficiency – in businesses, buildings and transport – has huge potential to cut and manage demand. In developing countries, decentralized renewables can help provide electricity for more than one billion people without current access
