Sustainable energy infrastructure

A new design for life

70% of greenhouse gas emissions come from energy, industry and buildings combined so an unprecedented transformation of existing and future infrastructure assets will be needed to achieve net zero. We must radically reimagine how we plan, finance, build, operate and decommission renewable energy and power grid infrastructure projects, so that our energy future is greener, affordable and secure. There is no greater challenge.

Fuelling a greener future

Transportation. Manufacturing. Mining. Industries that have big power needs also need big change. Delivering radical decarbonisation by powering up renewables and building greener, sustainable infrastructures. Creating greater value for people, planet and performance.

An interplay of electrification and alternative fuels

Electric vehicles are big news. So big that the transition to them counts as a true megatrend for the 2020s. But it’s not the whole picture. To decarbonize by 2050, the world will need to embrace alternative fuels. Sustainable Aviation fuel. Hydrogen. Biofuels. These could become the biggest source of power for transportation and industry.

A new formula for success

For the chemicals sector to catch up in the great energy transition, it must make huge strides. Moving to green energy, clean feedstocks and circularity; collaborating with agriculture and manufacturing and tapping into the potential of new and substitute chemicals. Decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors is a complex formula – and vital to get right.

Green is the new gold

This is mining’s moment. The sector must increase capacity to provide critical minerals for the energy transition, while reducing carbon emissions. The move to low-carbon mining and circularity is key. Costs can be controlled by relocating, reinvesting and realigning vital inputs. And only then can the greener minerals of tomorrow be born. Our climate depends on them.

Cities are both a problem for net zero and a solution

The stability of every city depends on an uninterrupted supply of energy to power its buildings, transport, digital infrastructure, water supply, commercial and industrial activities. With most cities still relying largely on fossil fuels, this creates a huge carbon footprint. Read this article, as part of a content series 'Energy Intersections' from the Financial Times, sponsored by PwC, on how cities can also become the centres for sustainable growth.
