Energy is at the Center

The vast market landscape of the energy sector is complex and volatile—two characteristics that make it difficult for industry participants to keep up with changes. But failure to stay up to date could mean missing key opportunities or being placed in tough operating positions.

Every energy industry is forced to remain vigilant in identifying and analyzing trends, as well as developing strategies for addressing them, especially major industries:

  • Oil and gas
  • Renewable energy and fuels
  • Coal

The oil and gas industry, from upstream to downstream, is at the epicenter of shifts in the market. This includes refining and marketing, exploration and production, and drilling. Significant fluctuations in oil prices have caused even oil majors to experience decreased profits and reassess their operations, processes, and human resource plans.

Inter-Industry Links

And with oil and coal operating on limited resources, renewable energy and renewable fuels maintain their important role in ensuring the availability of sustainable energy sources. Not surprising given predictions by organizations such as the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) that the global renewable energy share could increase to 30% or more by 2030.

Still, there’s more than just the industry itself. Many inter-industry linkages exist across energy, which only further complicate matters. Energy is fed by or feeds nearly every industry: Agriculture and biofuels, construction, manufacturing, transportation, and many more. That’s why changes or trends in this industry often have a domino effect across other industries.
