Inside the global clean energy transition

Who we are

Climate change, technology, policy and economics are changing the world of energy. As a business leader or policymaker, you need to have the necessary information at your fingertips to cut through the noise and make the right decisions.

We are a non-partisan voice examining the data and politics behind the move away from fossil fuels and the embrace of renewables and energy efficiency. We examine how countries and companies can reduce emissions in line with the Paris climate agreement while ensuring a just transition.
