Management Skills and Innovation are Key to Overcome the Current Difficulties in the Energy Industry

by admin





Energy is pivotal to the address of some of the most pressing global issues. The industry represents one of the most amazing, dynamic, but also unpredictable sectors across the world.

Assessing the key drivers for energy demand and supply going forward, the impact of climate change, the increased role of renewables and what the future holds for the industry are some of the challenges experience by senior energy professionals.

The future of the industry

Technology will continue to play a significant part in the industry and change its dynamics. Technological trends are crucial not only for technical efficiency in supply and consumption, but also for industrial structures and for the design of regulatory regimes and policy.

“To bring new sustainable energy for the long term we need new leaders that are well versed in policies, techniques and ability to bring energy and use it strictly to meet the challenges of the world – Management Skills and Innovation are Key” said Michael Borrell, Europe and Asia Senior Vice-President of Total E&P.
