Energy powers the world economy, lifts people from poverty, elevates living standards, and allows societies to prosper. Investment in energy technologies, R&D and infrastructure is critical for stable energy markets and for an orderly transition to clean energy
Energy transitions are slow and a decade of poor financial performance by energy companies, coupled with historic low returns for oil and gas companies has resulted in underinvestment in oil and gas supply, contributing to current energy market uncertainties and price volatilities.
