Energy makes a vital contribution to people's quality of life, to society and to human progress. This is true today, and it will remain true in the future. Energy Matters is an initiative that provides transparent information and an objective viewpoint on energy. Here, we'll cover a range of topics: the scale of global energy; the ways energy is sourced and produced; current energy technology; forthcoming innovations; the world's future energy needs; and the sustainable sources of energy that will fill them. Because energy matters to everyone, we hope you'll rely on Energy Matters as an ongoing source of balanced information.
