Getting a Handle on Energy
April 2015 | Executive Summary
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:
- a further price collapse;
- stabilization at current low prices;
- recovery of previous higher prices; and
- 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.
