The Majors’ energy transition: New Energy Series

Report summary

The global energy markets are changing fast, accelerated by the impact of the coronavirus, weakening outlook for fossil fuel demand and tightening regulatory environment. Understanding the strategies of the energy transition pioneers is essential for those who are trying to position themselves for a low-carbon future. To help our clients navigate the emerging corporate energy transition landscape, we are producing the Corporate New Energy Series. The series leverages our deep understanding, data and analysis of the European Majors’ new energy strategies and portfolios and draws on expertise from the corporate, energy transition practice and carbon research teams. It includes six corporate new energy profiles for Total, Shell, BP, Eni, Equinor and Repsol, four thematic corporate benchmarking reports for solar, offshore wind, CCUS and hydrogen, as well as a carbon benchmarking primer.
