The trend seminar held on 19 October 2022 offered a summary of the trend report with insights and reflections in the form of a brief review of each area and a joint panel discussion.

Energy issues have rarely generated so much commitment and been the subject of so much dynamism as they do now. 2022 has seen price records for both electricity and fuel, reversals in policies and instruments, and a clear link between energy and security issues. In addition, climate change is evident through record droughts that are impacting both water and energy supplies. What does the future hold for the energy landscape, and what innovations do we need to focus on in order to transition to an economically, ecologically, and socially sustainable energy system?
