EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Getting a Handle on Energy

Energy price volatility is expected to continue. How will it affect the way the global pie is sliced? This strategic overview explores the short-term impact on the global economy, the consumer response, and the effects on labor markets and investment.

In the medium-term analysis, second-round effects are considered within four scenarios:

  1. a further price collapse;
  2. stabilization at current low prices;
  3. recovery of previous higher prices; and
  4. a boom/bust environment with wide fluctuations.

The adaptive capacity of energy-dependent organizations will be challenged. Test the robustness of your company's strategy, identify risks, and unlock opportunities through the lens of each scenario.
