Share of renewable energy
According to the scenario put forward by the International Energy Agency (IEA), the share of renewable energies in the global energy mix is expected to increase sharply, from 9% currently to more than 20% in 2035. Alongside natural gas, the least carbon-intensive fossil fuel, renewables will make it possible both to meet the world’s growing demand for electricity and to limit global warming...

Over the next 20 years, electricity demand will increase faster than the demand for energy as a whole. In order to meet this growing need, tackle the challenges of climate change and comply with the International Energy Agency’s 2°C scenario, we have made it our ambition for low-carbon businesses to account for nearly 20% of our portfolio in 20 years....

From ensuring people's safety and security to meeting the challenges of climate change and strengthening our integration into local communities, we act in a sustainable and responsible manner every day. This is what being committed to better energy is all about....
How do solar panels work?
At its most basic, solar panels consist of an array of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into electricity by a process known as the photovoltaic effect. Photovoltaic or PV cells consist of at least two semi-conductive materials, such as silicon, one of which has a positive charge while the other is negative. When exposed to sunlight some of the photons are absorbed by the negative semiconductor atoms (at the bottom), which in turn free electrons to flow (if connected to an electrical load) back to the positive semiconductor (at the top). This flow of electrons is called direct current (DC)...
