Speeding up the energy transition?
With oil and gas prices rising sharply – oil passed $110 a barrel in March 2022 – and a moving geopolitical landscape, what does the ongoing conflict in Ukraine mean for energy transition and how can we hasten the speed of that transition in the light of dire warnings from the latest IPCC Report?
In the short term, prices of oil and fossil fuels are rising. And clearly a switch to renewables can’t happen overnight. But does this the current geopolitical climate provide an opportunity to accelerate the transition over the next decade or so – and how do we create that acceleration? Is nuclear energy really a viable option?
Our esteemed panel will consider the energy transition from a global perspective and how financial services professionals should be advising and supporting individuals and businesses customers in this evolving situation.
