Oil & Gas Majors' power sector investments a signpost for the utility of the future

Report summary

As the energy transition takes hold and peak oil demand becomes a visible reality within the next 2 decades, the world’s largest oil and gas companies are beginning to adapt. The next 20 years will see increasing rates of electrification driven by growth in renewable energy and non-traditional end uses of electricity. So where are the more attractive opportunities for the Majors in electricity markets? We believe that much of the value to be captured will be downstream, closer to consumers. In comparison to large-scale project development, these markets have higher barriers to entry; will allow the Majors to leverage their existing brands and retail capabilities; and could therefore offer more attractive opportunities for growth.
