Each of the G20 countries has the responsibility to respond to the climate change crisis and the global energy demand by developing their respective energy industries. Utilising effective transitions in global energy use to help solve these key issues requires technological ingenuity, government compliance, economic viability and public acceptance.

This paper will explore and address the challenges and opportunities held by the global energy industry to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) and keep lights up in our homes. The following research will use sources such as scientific papers and policy documents from federal governments and internationally renowned organisations. The findings of this research is expected. Through this paper I hope to highlight the key developments and structural reforms needed to successfully attain these energy objectives.Read More
