The Nordic countries are right to be proud of their leadership in the energy transition and to want to share their achievements with the world.
In this edition of FORESIGHT Climate and Energy we take a look at the street in Norway where electric vehicles rule, at how countries around Europe are being inspired by Denmark’s low carbon district heating model and at the Nordic companies driving efforts to decarbonise shipping fleets.
We also set the record straight on what an increase in electrification and variable renewables in the grid actually means in terms of flexibility, where gas fits into the energy transition, and why companies need to take action on climate risk.
The energy transformation is a monumental challenge and progress everywhere is still far too slow if the global temperature rise is to be kept to below levels agreed in the international climate deal signed in Paris in 2015.
With this in mind, we encourage even those at the forefront of the transformation to look outside their borders for inspiration. We trust that FORESIGHT will spark conversations and galvanise action for change.
