Energy is set to dominate the transport agenda around the world in the coming decades for two inescapable reasons: - Energy costs have risen dramatically in recent years and may continue, for a variety of reasons, to rise in the future - The carbon emissions from energy use are a matter of increasing concern as the causes andconsequences of global warming become clearer Even "renewable" energy is not cheap, nor without environmental consequences; indeed the setting of "renewable" and "biofuel" targets by the European Commission will add to the cost pressure. As well as being the subject of concerns about greenhouse gases, fossil fuel use is increasingly regulated in respect of pollutants such as sulphur and particulates, again adding to the cost. Globalisation of the energy market, and the inter-linking of supply networks means that everyone is affected. No one can say that these topics are not important to them and their particular business.
