For the first time, the UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow on 1-12 November 2021. To meet the Paris Agreement goals, we need the global transition to clean power to be at least four times faster than it is at present. As demand for energy grows, there is an increasing pressure to reduce emissions and shift towards clean energy. With the development of a low-carbon economy accelerating, there is an opportunity to create value through integrated energy systems and deliver net zero deadlines.
