As the countdown to a new energy world intensifies, who will beat the clock?
Radical transformation is creating an energy sector that is more complex, competitive and challenging than ever. And, while energy companies are preparing for change, most aren’t adapting fast enough. Time is running out to adopt key capabilities, business models and a new flexible mindset.

Decarbonization: Business risk or business opportunity for oil and gas companies?
What is the role for oil and gas when consumers and governments demand renewables? Oil and gas companies are already investing in solar and wind, exploring electric vehicle opportunities, and developing innovative new fuels. But what leading strategies should they implement to decarbonize their portfolios?
Speaker: Jeff Williams
Should oil and gas invest in what it knows or what it thinks will be?
The oil and gas industry continues to be profitable, but the energy transition means that it faces unprecedented disruption and an uncertain future. On one hand, costs are falling and fracking is reducing supply concerns. On the other, competition from renewables is increasing. We’ve modeled four scenarios to help guide the bolder investment strategies today that will secure stronger profits tomorrow.
Speaker: Andy Brogan
Why the success of the energy transition depends on networks
The world’s commitment to decarbonization may fail if network operators do not respond in time. Can they do more than merely keep pace with the new ways to generate, distribute and consume energy — and become catalysts of these changes? We reveal our thoughts on the key ingredients to successful transformation.

Less fuel, more experience. How to develop a retail model that moves beyond fuel sales.
Is there a future for fuel retail when electric vehicles dominate our roads? Leading oil and gas companies are embracing the potential of e-mobility to develop a radically different retail model that moves beyond fuel sales. Hear more about our perspective and how we’ve worked with clients in the Middle East to drive a new path forward.

When energy becomes abundant and (almost) free, what will energy companies sell?
By 2027, energy companies are expected to lose US$80b in revenues due to distributed solar. Running distributed networks, coordinating prosumers and acting as flexibility providers are some of the new roles emerging, but capturing these opportunities will require energy companies to embrace collaboration, develop laser-like customer focus, and invest in digital and enabling technologies.
Speaker: Thierry Mortier
When electric transport takes charge, how can energy companies fast-track opportunities?
Electric vehicles are accelerating fast, on track to make up almost 50% of all new car sales in some markets. This means more pressure on the grid, but the opportunities can potentially outpace any challenges. Embracing these will require energy companies to think beyond charging and embrace entirely new ways to capture value in the e-mobility revolution.
Speaker: Thierry Mortier
If the future is bright for natural gas, is it gas and oil now?
The future is bright for natural gas, at least in the medium term, as it acts as a transition fuel in the journey to decarbonization. But its role in the longer term is less clear, making it difficult to make critical capital investment decisions. We’ve modeled scenarios to find answers to the biggest dilemmas of gas companies, including how quickly coal-fired generation will be replaced and which natural gas assets will compete best against renewables.
