This site is about the business of energy.
More specifically its about how the world primary energy mix will change, probably fundamentally, in the next few years, due to a combination of three things:
- developments in global energy policies and analysis
- the maturing of alternative energy technologies
- the response of energy companies to the changes
I have been in the energy industry for over 32 years with two major European oil and gas companies, and I'll use that background to inform the posts.
The site will be updated weekly and is intended to stimulate debate, reflect on key trends and issues, and maybe set some ideas in motion.
NB - All content and comment is my opinion only, and does not reflect the philosophy or beliefs of any firm I have worked for, or am working with.
I have no financial holding in any energy-based company.
