Over the next 20 years, the traditional developed regions will lose ground to emerging markets where rapid urbanization and the creation of a middle class will drive electricity demand, as a wealthier population acquires electrical appliances considered standard in the developed world. The largest growth will occur in the renewable energy field. In the current transitional phase of 2012 to 2013, energy companies face a challenging environment of overcapacity, unpredictable oil prices, protectionism, geopolitical tensions, high debt-to-GDP ratios, unwinding of national stimulus initiatives, unemployment, and fluctuating currencies. It is vital that companies diversify into renewable to achieve excellence in financial and risk management to outperform the industry and add value to shareholders. Companies need to look at best practices and appropriate havens for renewable energy development in order to attract potential investors.

Why you should attend:

  • Learn about trends transforming the energy industry
  • Discover key industry challenges, drivers and restraints
  • Discern strategies to gain a competitive advantage in renewable energy

This briefing will benefit oil and gas manufacturers, petroleum companies, renewable energy-based organizations, utility distributors, and investors by discussing emerging trends, best practices and sustainable strategies to gain a leadership position in the renewable energy industry.
