Energy Investment: Where's the money flowing?

Tuesday, March 10

11:30 am - 12:30 pm

In the past two years, decapitalization of the oil and gas industry has accelerated, creating new challenges for investors: stranded assets, relative value of assets, and most importantly, energy transition investment opportunities. With the shale business model pivoting to returns rather than growth, can new private and public energy investments provide the type of growth that shales promised? What strategies are investors implementing to capture value in the energy sector? What are the implications of oil and gas sector decapitalization and energy transition capitalization? How should investors compare investments in different energy sectors, such as higher, more volatile oil and gas investments versus lower, guaranteed returns on renewable/utility investments? Is there enough capital and returns available for the decarbonization agenda? Which emerging energy technologies have the most promise and appeal to investors? Where is the money flowing? Is the current trend inevitable or cyclical? What could catalyze acceleration, deceleration, or reversals? How will private markets and capital respond to what is happening in the public investing world?
