ENERGY TRANSITION HUB Disadvantages of current energy model



The current energy model is unsustainable, costly and has a large environmental impact. Moreover, it is characterised by constantly growing energy consumption. This continuous increase means a constant increase in the price of the raw materials used to obtain energy, which severely affects the competitiveness of economies.

And this price increase will have a repercussion on the energy bills not only of business and industry, but also of households, many of which will be unable to afford them. From a socio-economic perspective, maintaining the current energy model is therefore not an option for governments.

Furthermore, from an environmental perspective, greater consumption of fossil resources will mean an increase in greenhouse gas emissions and pollution levels in general.

It is therefore essential to reduce the economy's dependency on fossil fuels and cut greenhouse gas emissions, by committing to solutions that will reduce energy consumption and encouraging the use of renewable energy.
