The Energy Sector relates to the production and supply of energy. Renewable energy is generally defined as energy that comes from resources which are naturally replenished on a human timescale such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and waves. Renewable energy replaces conventional fuels in four distinct areas, electricity generation, air and water heating/ cooling, motor fuels, and rural (off-grid) energy services. The Energy Sector is very closely linked with engineering, manufacturing and ports & logistic sectors.

The chemical industry comprises the companies that produce industrial chemicals. Central to the modern world economy, it converts raw materials (oil, natural gas, air, water, metal, fibres, paints, pharmaceutical ingredients and minerals) into more than 70,000 different products.
