Intro

Energy transitions and green transformations are key focuses of our work. The gradual expansion of renewable energy sources will have considerable impacts on our energy system as we know it with regards to utilities, grid infrastructure and energy efficiency. We encourage an intensified global dialogue around these issues and provide best practice examples through policy dialogue on the international, national and local levels.
