The Problem

  1. Step change in Energy demand – In coming decades, the world will need huge amounts of energy to support population and economic growth and improve standards of living. We expect the global demand for energy will double by 2050.
  2. Supply will struggle to keep pace – Energy supply from all sources will struggle to keep up with demand. There will be continued dependence on fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal and we will also need rapid growth in renewables.
  3. Environmental stresses are increasing – Energy needs to be produced in environmentally and socially responsible ways. Environmental stresses from producing and using energy are increasing. There is an urgent need for low carbon technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The Solution

  • Conventional oil and gas exploration, recovery, and extraction
  • Non-conventional oil and gas
  • Alternative and renewable energy (solar, wind, hydrogen, biofuels, geothermal, etc.)
  • Renewable and bio-based chemicals
  • Mobility / smart mobility
  • Energy efficiency / smart grid
  • Energy finance and trading

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
