Energy is a thought-leading, technology-neutral magazine, developed to help the industry answer some of the critical questions it is currently grappling with. We look at the policies and politics affecting the industry; but we always place the emphasis on outcomes rather than political point-scoring. We are committed to helping the industry move forward and    solve the energy trilemma – establishing new forms of energy that are reliable, affordable and clean – without over-emphasising the role governments will play in finding the solution.
