As we look forward to 2021, Covid-19, and its continuing impact on energy demand, will likely remain the background against which other significant events will unfold. Yet, by any measure, 2021 will be a significant year for the industry. Policy changes arising from the COP-26 meeting in November, the potentially game-changing transformation of energy in the US post the November 2020 election, and the launch of a 14th Five-Year Plan in China all have repercussions, adding to the uncertainties the sector is already facing. And the world will look on anxiously to decipher the next moves in the oil markets—whether shale will rebound, and the possibility of countermeasures by OPEC+ to balance the market.
The Financial Times have partnered with The Al-Attiyah Foundation to host its final Webinar of 2020. The webinar will share expert opinions on the continuing impact of the pandemic for the energy markets, the strategies needed to adapt and build resilience in a fast-evolving energy market, and how the energy debate will be reframed by climate challenge, customers, and investors
