“The future of Energy” by Karima Verjee, our Sustainability officer – British Spanish Society Revista 258

November 2022

It’s impossible to miss headlines about climate change and the harm that carbon emissions are doing to our planet. Not a day goes by without an alarm bell going off. Due to human activity, the temperature of the earth has increased by 1.5 degrees since the industrial revolution. Currently energy use accounts for almost 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).  Furthermore, global energy demand is projected to more than double by 2050 as the population grows and economies shift. Due to increased pressures on energy demand, triggered by the Ukraine war, the need to move to clean sustainable energy is now more pressing than ever in order to meet global energy demand and for the world to reach net zero targets.
