2016/17: “The Energy [R]evolution”

Theme

In the face of rising global population and increasing demand for energy, one of the most important challenges of the 21st century is meeting our energy needs in a sustainable way.The transition from the current energy system towards a long-term decarbonisation for affordable, reliable and clean energy, leads to the emergence of new technologies and innovations, while fast-paced changes in energy security issues impact on geopolitics. Global Sustain, for 10th year in a row, raises awareness and triggers a global discussion regarding critical issues, through a high-end international publication. This year’s edition is entitled “The Energy (R)evolution” and will focus on the evolution and challenges of the energy market that impact on the climate and the world economy, aiming to navigate and better understand our energy future. Supply and demand of energy commodities, the impact of climate change, energy policies, challenges and opportunities, innovation and development of clean energy technologies, are only some of the topics included in the publication. There is no doubt that an energy revolution has begun, giving us the opportunity to address the dynamics of a changing energy world in ways that can make nations more secure, our economies more prosperous, and the planet more sustainable.
