Energy Perspectives 2020:
A time of great uncertainty
Energy Perspectives celebrates its 10th anniversary in a year of unprecedented events. The COVID-19 pandemic has sent shockwaves through energy markets, economies and societies, affecting all our lives for years to come.
The events of 2020 have made scenario planning more relevant than ever, allowing us to see where our decisions may lead. Energy Perspectives does not predict the future, but gives us a way to examine and debate what may lie ahead in an informed and reasoned way.
In this year’s report we look at the consequences of a slow energy transition, what happens when we prioritise economic growth over the environment, and what it would take to reach the well below 2°C Paris climate target.
