Note – we see the “Energy Transition” as very broad

Given it seems to be something we’ll be referring back to numerous times, I’ve added in this link here to collect references (below) to that point.

1)  It involves far more than just concerns about climate change, and de-carbonising electricity supplies (though obviously that’s a big challenge in itself).

2)  It also involves technology change and changing consumer preferences + a heightened level of awareness of the role of electricity in society and life.
