What lies ahead in 2024?

The gathering pace of the energy transition, geopolitical forces and shifting market dynamics all combine to ensure that one thing is certain: the energy and natural resources landscape is constantly changing.

But while it is perhaps always wise to expect the unexpected, it’s also helpful to get an expert view of the likely twists and turns on the road ahead. That’s why our analysts have scanned the horizon and made their predictions for the top trends, themes, challenges and opportunities for the coming year.

From a look at which way the wind is blowing for offshore and onshore wind, to a region-by-region exploration of upstream oil and gas.
