Lunch Panel: A World Awash with Oil & Gas – What’s Next?
The oversupply of oil is set to remain in global markets, with energy prices expected to remain lower for longer. Cheaper oil means producers need to squeeze the value out of every last drop. Production needs to be smarter by leveraging on new technology to cut costs to remain efficient and nimble. This session will explore the implications and how the industry will adapt.
Session 2: Building a Low-Carbon Future
While lower oil & gas prices present increased competition for renewables, the global consensus on climate change has placed greater emphasis on sustainable energy. This session will explore the impact of lower energy prices on our transition to a more sustainable future, and the impact on the overall energy mix.
Session 3: Disruptive Technologies and the Energy Consumer
Innovative technologies have placed the consumer at the heart of the utility business. The development of smart energy infrastructure and the growth of distributed energy generation are changing how utility players think about grid structure and the business of generation, distribution and consumption. This session will discuss the re-orientation of businesses around the consumer, as well as the evolution of regulations and retail markets.
