Markets, law and governance
What are the key policy, legal and market interventions that will help to fast track decarbonisation and the energy transition?
We need to consider how the changes required for the energy transition are governed, and who makes the decisions crucial to this governance. The financial and economic implications of the transition must also be considered.
A circular economy reduces waste and emissions by reusing and repurposing raw materials in perpetuity, transforming everyday life into a sustainable future.
Conservation and biodiversity
All life (not just that of humans) is valuable. We must work to preserve animal life and the natural environment as much as possible during the energy transition.
Decision analysis and policy support
For the energy transition to be successful, policy needs to be develop that address the concerns of a range of stakeholders. Decisions must be made democratically to be equitable.
Energy economics encompasses the economic aspects of all and any of energy sources and systems. It aims to quantify uncertainties in the minerals and energy sectors, and manage evolving risks and uncertainties.
Energy transition plays a key role in the wider marketplace – investment in this area supports education, skills development, infrastructure and economic growth.
ESG, carbon and natural capital accounting
Business strategies aimed at decarbonisation must focus on enhancing environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance while maintaining financial sustainability.
