The world is transitioning to a new energy future – one where major questions exist about how to position for the future. As a result, energy and oil and gas companies in particular need to understand a more complex and interconnected set of problems which range from—what the future energy mix should be; what effect will decarbonization have; what is the proper mix of upstream assets – conventional, unconventional, offshore and EOR; and what is the value proposition energy companies bring to communities or the license to operate in increasing sensitive areas. As a result of the onset of digitalization, more powerful computers and automation, industry has massive amounts of data to shift through. To be successful then, a new level of understanding and skills are needed.
OBJECTIVES Leaders and rising new leaders will get a wide vision of the future of the industry, the major questions arising from the possible scenarios, and the factors and skills that will be needed to solve the problems to navigate successfully to the future
Module 3: Gas and renewables and their role as power fuels in an increasingly decarbonized world recap of the global picture and the key trends highlighting renewable energy; technology and its potential to disrupt an energy path; the gas sector and how the various fuels both compete and complement each other to varying degrees at different times especially in Latin America. Participants will understand what structural changes will likely accompany its evolution, what risks it poses, and what strategies different players will pursue in this environment. They will also go through some scenario exercises to fully understand what the driving forces and major uncertainties are in the region—highlighting the technological factors reviewed the day before to support business strategies and thinking.
Renewable energy and the energy markets. Where are we today and where could we be going? How and where are renewables growing most rapidly? Renewable energy and Scenarios. Policy and support mechanisms overview. What are the hidden costs? What is holding back the market from expanding further? How competitive will green technologies be compared to conventional alternatives?
Innovation and Technology: Is there a game changer on the horizon? Lessons from reinventing the wheel. Are EVs and autonomous vehicles game changers as transportation shifts from oil to electricity? How do smart grids, battery storage, and distributed generation change the equation? Can renewables continue to grow without another breakthrough?
Natural Gas: Bridge fuel or a key contributor? Scenarios and global gas markets. What are the key signposts for the gas industry as we look out over the next 20 years? From rigid and regional to local and flexible. Natural gas´ unique attributes and why they are essential for future power grids.
