The global pandemic currently gripping our world has brought untold devastation to millions of people, striking deep on both the economic and social foundations of modern society. Emergency measures aimed at preventing the spread of the virus have, rightly, placed the well-being of individuals at centre stage.
With countries locked down and economies having ground to a halt; entire industries have been left in flux. The energy sector is held tightly within the grip of Covid-19. With geopolitical tensions providing further convulsions, crashing energy demand, plummeting oil price and workforce shutdown has left our sector on life support.
Defining Discussions for 2020:
- A Fast Tracked Transition: Crisis as a Catalyst. We are realising an energy mix that we did not expect to see this decade. Has COVID-19 fast-tracked the energy transition?
- Reuters Editorial in Conversation with Lord Browne, former CEO, bp – *Please note: This interview is conducted by Reuters Editorial, which operates independently from the Reuters commercial operation.
- Peak Demand? What does this mean for companies in transition, how can companies pivot through crisis and how can we ensure better business, rather than business as normal?
- Opportunities and Risks for Energy Transition Reform, based on data-drive analysis with InfluenceMap
- Clean Energy as an Agent for Recovery. How can we encourage continued growth in establish renewables whilst delivering funding for new innovations. How and where should the trillion dollar stimulus packages be spent?
