Energy Transition and the race to net zero is upon us now. Governments have set a clear path forward with a determined end point to achieve the required energy mix to obtain net carbon free emissions targets by 2050. From a business perspective this is a golden opportunity, the demand is confirmed.

  • Disputes in transition
