North American Gas and Power Scenarios

  • Energy rivalry driven by 4 factors: price differentials, environmental concerns, technology improvements and energy security
  • Gas loosens oil’s grip on transport demand
  • Renewables increasingly competitive with gas, coal and nuclear in power generation
  • Pollution paradox: countries grow richer, consume more energy and then address pollution
  • Market, technology and social forces transform the global energy system
  • Decentralization of energy supply
  • Widespread unconventional oil and gas development
  • Generational change and urbanization pressures alter energy demand dynamics
  • Breakthrough in electricity storage and solar PV
  • Frequent economic/financial tremors cause instability that undermines confidence and exacerbates risk aversion
  • Investment time lag leads to mismatches between demand and supply
  • Disruptive innovations heighten sense of imbalance and instability
