The global energy landscape is undergoing a massive transformation. New technologies and new sources of energy are coming on-stream, while shocks emanating from regional instabilities threaten to disrupt current supply chains. The Middle East is shaken by ongoing conflicts while sanctions on Russia create near-term uncertainties about energy supplies to Europe. At the same time, unconventional oil and gas production continues to change market forecasts and perceptions about the future. But what does that future look like? How vulnerable are we to supply shocks – and where are the biggest threats? How long will it take before unconventional energy production replaces traditional supplies? How can we make sense of the global energy geopolitics?
Our conference brought together leading global experts, policy-makers and business practitioners to discuss the changing energy landscape and to explore demand, production, technology and policy trends that have the potential to reshape global energy landscape.
