Energy is something we all use every day and it comes from a variety of sources: fossil fuels, nuclear, wind, solar and tidal. Global energy consumption is increasing overall, but not everyone has equal access to energy in various parts of the world.

The Energy Topic has some natural overlap with Water, Transport and Food & the Environment.
