Following on from our hugely successful James Bond 007 themed event “Why The Net Zero Carbon World Is Not Enough”, Energy Institute APAC is pleased to invite you to our next pre-COP26 thriller event.
As the world cranks up its efforts to limit global warming, the consequences for the oil and gas industry will be severe. Wood Mackenzie will show how energy demand and supply could shift dramatically in the face of rapid policy and technological change to cut greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.
Under their accelerated energy transition scenario (AET-2) to 2050, the energy market would be progressively electrified and the most polluting hydrocarbons squeezed out. Prices would come under pressure as demand falls and, in a ‘Copernican revolution’, the traditional relationship between oil and gas prices would be turned upside down.
To be clear, their AET-2 scenario is just that – a scenario – and not their base-case forecast. It envisions how one interpretation of the Paris Agreement could be achieved, based on their fundamental analysis across the natural resource sectors. Even so, the oil and gas industry cannot afford to be complacent.
The risks associated with robust climate-change policy and rapidly changing technology are simply too great. And, as they will show, the implications of a scenario akin to their 2 °C analysis are profound.
