Clean energy transition events hosted by GITEX Impact dive into the energy transition and the efforts that can be made during this time of great change. Cutting-edge technology is setting industries up for a smooth energy transition as renewable energy becomes more mainstream.
What is the Energy Transition?
The energy transition is the energy sector’s efforts to make the shift from utilising fossil fuel-based energy to more renewable means in order to produce limited carbon emissions. This renewable energy transition means that there is a global shift from oil, coal, and natural gas production and consumption to sustainable sources that currently include wind, solar, hydrogen, and lithium-ion batteries.
The demand for more sustainable means of transportation, manufacturing, energy production, and consumption is transforming industries. Net zero transitions, much like what we are seeing in the energy sector, are a combination of societal demand and technological advancement. The energy transition is being made possible as seen by:
- Affordable solar energy and wind power
- Widespread commitment to renewable energy sources
- Electric transportation
- Renewable energy storage
- Network digitization and energy efficiency
- Public electrification targets
