About energy generation and use. To make the economy circular we will need energy. In addition, the forever balancing of climate, biodiversity and social aspects. Each lever pulls on others and getting the best solution for an application (e.g. biodegradable, recyclable, system change all together) all need a serious amount of collaboration and data to make the best next decision.
