Five predictions as we enter the age of the energy transition


For the previous few centuries, humans have been burning through fossil fuel reserves with somewhat reckless abandon. Yet in the 2020s, and based on extensive peer-reviewed research, we make five big and bold predictions linked to the future of energy systems and the social infrastructures that need them. The full report call be accessed via Reuters Events Energy Transition News and Content Hub, via the Energy Transition Report & Whitepapers section.


Prime time to put transition in focus


In these difficult times, it is challenging to manage day-to-day business as well as thinking to the future. Clearly, we have seen rapid and significant changes to business operations and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (Areg) members and others are under greater pressure than ever to deliver results.


Once in a generation opportunity


There has been a lot of discussion in the media recently about the prospects that the “great plague of 2020” will inevitably lead to fundamental changes in both our economy and our society.


Supporting net zero – John Lawrie’s mission


We are proud to be a part of an industry that has evolved considerably over the last 90 years, delivering real economic growth to the UK and worldwide economies whilst making an undeniably positive impact on the environment. As technology has evolved our knowledge, expertise and work ethic continues to play a vital role in the success of metal recycling.


Wood, Lundin and Carbon Tracker on road to net-zero


In the age of the Great Energy Transition, oil and gas companies face a dual challenge; to reduce operational emissions whilst keeping up with growing energy demand they will need to increase both asset performance and lifetime. With increasing numbers of incumbent O&G players making net-zero commitments, the sector will increasingly be judged both by their cost per barrel / cubic feet AND their carbon footprint per barrel.


Is carbon intensity a misleading metric?


It has been encouraging to witness many oil and gas majors sign up to the energy transition and net zero. Repsol, BP, Total, Shell and Equinor have all outlined their strategies.
