Trends and market developments The energy transition, and thus the transformation of our energy system, continues unabated. It is essential that we identify and anticipate developments in time, so that we can guarantee the continued supply of energy in the future. This is in the interests of our organisation, customers and other stakeholders, who are increasingly dependent on energy. The challenges we face have gained in urgency since the Paris Climate Agreement. Our response to these challenges will determine our role in the energy transition.
