As the world's population continues to grow, the demand for energy will keep rising.

Australia is an important supplier of energy. We are blessed with natural gas resources that can provide energy to customers both in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.

Renewable energy also will play a part. But technological breakthroughs are needed to develop and deploy renewable energy at a significant scale.

It took more than 100 years to build the energy system that powers the global economy. The scale of the world's energy needs is far beyond the capacity of any one source or technology. Traditional energy sources, such as oil and natural gas, will be the largest part of the energy mix for decades to come.

The world will need all the energy we can produce, in every form.

Research and development is a key to unlocking new energy frontiers — locally, nationally and globally.

Chevron's partnership with the University of Western Australia has shown me first-hand the value of working together for a common goal.

As a consequence of our united efforts, two excellent professors have been appointed to enhance research and teaching in petroleum geoscience and chemical engineering. This benefits both industry in general and future generations striving to always seek better forms of energy. Together, we are at the centre of energy development and providing social, economic and environmental benefits along the way.

It will take strong partnerships and a commitment to excellence to find energy solutions for tomorrow, today.
