    Mapping the Capital Transition

    Panel Finance & Investment/Trading & Risk Management/ESG

    The last two years have seen accelerated capital markets’ involvement in climate change. Now, financing the energy transition is steering structural changes in capital allocation, investments and valuations of assets, technologies, and companies. New green financial instruments and investment mandates have undergone a seismic shift and are changing the way we think about energy investments, value creation, cost of capital, and implicit carbon prices. Trillions of dollars in private capital have been raised, waiting to back clean energy and climate risk solutions. Will the financial returns on low-emission energy production or decarbonization strategies justify capital deployment?

    Energy Security in Europe

    Panel Gas & LNG
    A “perfect storm” of factors caused natural gas prices in Europe to rise to a previously unimaginable level of $33/MMBtu in the fourth quarter of 2021. High prices and extreme volatility have continued into 2022. The key role of gas in setting electricity prices has magnified the economic impact. Europe’s evident exposure to the global LNG market as well as the Russian supply strategy has caused soul-searching among policymakers, with security of gas supply concerns being refocused on price rather than just availability. While some blame for the energy price crisis has been directed at EU decarbonization targets, many EU governments and institutions are emphasizing the need to hasten the shift away from natural gas, not only for climate reasons but also to improve the continent’s energy security.
