A wealth of information on digital transformation and energy transition right at your fingertips.


Could hydrogen be the energy transition’s new best friend? Green hydrogen produced from wind or solar power can accelerate the transition to an industry and, more broadly, an economy with a low environmental impact. The market conditions and technological advances are now in place.

Maritime transport on course for net zero

With a carbon footprint that accounts for 3% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions, maritime transport is as polluting as air transport or the whole of Germany. However, cargo transport – 80% of which is by sea – still outperforms every other transportation system. The decarbonisation of shipping is therefore crucial. The UN, EU, national governments and other key players in the sector (shipowners, shippers, ports, etc.) are working together to accelerate maritime transport’s environmental transition.

The circular economy at the heart of environmental transition

With society under pressure from the climate crisis and the urgent need for energy transition, businesses are being asked to radically overhaul their design and production models. This major transformation includes massive adoption of techniques and materials that use fewer natural resources; systematic reuse and recycling of tools and materials; and widespread promotion of short loops.

Storage – accelerating the energy transition

The much-needed expansion of renewable energies, which are characterised by intermittent, decentralised production, has created a real need for increased electricity storage capacity. Technical, regulatory and economic obstacles yet to be overcome are holding back the rollout of new storage technologies.

Electric Mobility gathers pace

With technological innovation, changing uses and the necessary political will all coalescing, the future of electric mobility looks promising. With the thermal-engine vehicle’s disappearance edging closer every day, the brakes slowing the electric vehicle’s emergence as a product to transform usage are gradually being removed.
