A highly topical issue, energy transition has become the only possible response to the challenges posed by climate change, the depletion of easily accessible natural resources and the changes in the demand for energy.
The ESEC considers that energy transition must be a response to the climatic, ecological, economic and social challenges which we face. It will require proactive engagement in order to achieve a low-carbon, energy-efficient society, which only a strong political will can create.
