Taking action in the face of uncertainty during the energy transition

18 November 2020 | 14:00 GMT

Committing to the Paris Agreement is just the first step in the move to a lower-carbon future. Energy and industrial companies must soon commit, in a world of unprecedented uncertainty, to long-term strategic decisions that may have existential consequences. A new methodology is needed to cut through this overwhelming flow of data and to support strategies that are durable enough to succeed across multiple transition scenarios and be adapted as the world changes. Join our webinar with Petroleum Economist, as the panellists explore the plausible scenarios for the energy transition.

Many oil and gas producers had set out plans to transition to lower carbon fuels—but will this trend accelerate or lose momentum? The panel will unpack some pressing questions:

  • Would cheap oil for the foreseeable future help or hinder the energy transition?
  • How could the transition be funded amid low oil revenues?
  • Would investors and the public accept a slowing of the transition?
  • What are the geopolitical considerations of a shift to China-based renewables supply chains?
