Future energy prices and investment? Future energy markets (oil, gas, coal, nuclear power, wind, solar power etc) will be driven by EMOTION not just "market forces". Examples from recent disruptive energy-related events. Energy trends keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Energy, Oil and Gas - Keynote Speaker

Why energy markets and energy policy as well as government regulations are all driven by emotion / public mood.

The future of oil and gas sectors is about more than factors such as investment cycles, industry capacity, geopolitical risks and so on. Yes all these matter for future energy prices and policy, but the role of emotion is not fully understood by many people and will be very important in driving change.

We need to look again at the passion which is driving debate on issues such as sustainability, carbon zero nations, net zero manufacturing, alternative energy, wind energy, solar power, nuclear power, carbon sequestration and so on. Patrick Dixon - energy industry keynote speaker - for Seminarium Chile.

Energy as a national security strategy. Added incentives to go green. Futurist view of Future of the energy industry, oil, gas, coal, solar and wind in a post-COVID world impacted by regional conflict

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Energy, Oil and Gas - Keynote Speaker

What is the outlook for the energy industry for the next decade?  I have advised many of the largest green energy companies and traditional energy companies on the future. 


In “The Future of Almost Everything” published in 2019, I warned that unstable prices would create a lot of chaos in future for energy companies, and I was right.  Energy forecasts always have to be seen in the context of the global economy, geopolitics, technology, innovation, urbanisation, migration and social transformation.  I wrote in 2019 that we would be likely to see unstable oil prices with all kinds of supply and demand shocks, and prices ranging from above $180 to below $40. Just so. 


And I also wrote that these price convulsions would drive many green energy companies out of business, which is what is already happening...

After world declares war on COVID, expect it to declare war eventually on CLIMATE EMERGENCY. Impact of COVID on energystrategy, energy demand, oil, gas, coal, wind, solar power. Strategies for tackling climate emergency - Energy industry keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Energy, Oil and Gas - Keynote Speaker

Energy industry strategies for a post-COVID world. As a physician by first training and a Futurist advisor / keynote speaker on industry trends and strategy to over 400 of the world's largest 2000 companies, with a proven track record of longer term forecasting over the last 25+ years, here are some guiding principles for the energy industry including green tech beyond COVID. The global crisis will accelerate many pre-existing trends Most mega trends described in my books, including The Future of Almost Everything, will continue to shape the world as before, but the COVID pandemic will bring forward the timings of many key events in many industries.

While energy consumption will fall in line with falls in GDP globally, with collapse in oil and gas prices, falls in manufacturing and falls in transport including aviation, recovery of energy consumption will grow fastest in some of the poorest emerging markets with fewer resources to resist spread of COVID.  These nations will experience massive disruption but over a much shorter period than many European nations which will have some success in slowing spread.

Future of Oil Industry - what price for a barrel? Futurist comment on oil industry

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Energy, Oil and Gas - Keynote Speaker

The energy industry has to take a long term view of oil prices:  building gas power stations, solar farms or drilling new oil wells all require big investments with long pay-back periods. One of the greatest challenges for our world (and for future energy supplies) is that oil is so cheap – not to buy, but to get out of the ground in many places.    Many oil wells operate profitably at around $15-20 a barrel – which is above the 1999 oil price.  But oil sold at that price encourages over-use and puts most green tech companies out of business.

Smart Power Regulation - Energy Saving

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Energy, Oil and Gas - Keynote Speaker

Smart power regulation means that spikes of electricity demand can be managed by automatically turning off certain devices in factories, offices and homes when the grid is under strain.  It also means that electricity pricing can be varied from hour to hour depending on demand. Power companies have huge challenges managing peak demand and the result is wasted energy and extra costs.  Take Australia:  on the hottest four days a year, energy use can jump by over 50% compared to the average.  10% of the entire generating capacity of the country is used for just four days a year.

Biofuels Controversy and Climate Emergency - Future of Energy Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Energy, Oil and Gas - Keynote Speaker

Turning food into fuel has been widely promoted by many national leaders as a great way to beat the fuel crisis, while also reducing reliance on unstable oil and gas suppliers. However biofuels have also been blamed for higher food prices, food shortages in the poorest nations, hunger riots and fall of governments. US market for biodiesel is  larger than a billion gallons a year and Federal directives require this to rise to at least 36 billion gallons a year by 2022.  The European Union requires at least 5.75% of all transport fuel to be made from biofuel by 2010, rising to 10% by 2020.

Future of Wind Turbines in tackling climate emergency, in race towards Carbon Zero. Future of Green Energy and Sustainable Power Generation. Futurist Keynote Speaker

[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlv5-iuyriA 300 250]Windmills have been used for centuries – using wind to turn machinery.  Electricity generation using wind also has a long history, but has only taken off in the last three to five years, now growing 30% a year.   Wind already provides a peak global capacity greater than 100 gigawatts – to compare, the entire UK uses only a peak of 57 gigawatts.   Denmark produces 19% of electricity this way, Spain 9%, Ireland 6% and Germany 6%. The current US contribution of wind to electricity is only 1% but this could rise to 15% by 2020.

Carbon Capture - Climate Change Business

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Energy, Oil and Gas - Keynote Speaker

Carbon capture is the only way to burn fossil fuels without damaging the environment and our future will depend on it. Carbon Capture means collecting carbon dioxide gas from coal, oil or gas-fired power stations, and storing it permanently underground (sequestration). It is the most important way to reduce carbon emissions in electricity production, is available now and could be scaled up very rapidly. The size of the carbon market over the next 20 years could be greater than $500 billion – a single carbon capture and storage installation at a large plant can cost up to $1 billion to build.

Iceland Volcano Eruption - Geothermal Power Potential

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Energy, Oil and Gas - Keynote Speaker

The volcano eruption has forced millions of people to think the unthinkable: a world without air travel.  Its impact  across Europe is nothing compared to the possible impact of global warming by 2050. Such eruptions remind us of the vast energy beneath our feet, which could power our future. There is 250,000 times more geothermal energy available than is currently used – enough to power the lives of 7 billion people many times over, so long as it can be distributed from the most suitable sites to where it is needed.
