Investing in the Energy Future
In the past two years, decapitalization of the oil and gas industry has accelerated, as investors are reckoning with a cyclical downturn and a structural shift toward a new business model for companies to generate returns that meet the needs of shareholders. This cyclical downturn is compounded by longer-term structural challenge posed by the rise of climate risk and the race for green investing. Pledges of net-zero emissions have been made by virtually all the major economies, so companies, investors, and financial regulators are looking to overhaul the energy system in the next 20 years. What issues are at the crossroad between finance and companies’ strategies in the effort to deliver a sustainable energy system?
