What is the Dashboard?
It is a collection of reference quantitative information relating to the production and consumption of the different types of energy: oil, gas, coal, renewable energies. Alongside this objective data, drawn from the results of scientific studies from external and recognised sources and organisations, indicators concerning the progress of the energy transition have now been added. In particular, the Dashboard uses the Paris Climate Agreement (Cop 21) – aimed at keeping the global temperature increase to below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels by the year 2100 – as its reference.
This essential analytical work is in line with our raison d’être, “act to accelerate the transition to a carbon-neutral economy” and our ambition to be an energy transition leader.
The 2020 edition of the Energy Transition Dashboard
The 2020 edition of the Energy Transition Dashboard is exceptional in a number of ways:
- Firstly because it marks the emergence of a new way of presenting and analysing the energy balance on a worldwide scale. It now fits squarely with our raison d'être to position all our activities on a low-carbon trajectory.
- Also because this edition devotes an entire section of its analysis to the impact of the Covid-19 health crisis on energy – global production and consumption –, economies and the climate.
How can this unprecedented event with a global impact serve as a catalyst for accelerating the energy transition? The Energy Transition Dashboard seeks to sketch out some answers to this question.
