Today we have the luxury of choosing between several direct and indirect viable energy sources. Renewables and gas are two of these, and of course historically coal has been the dominant force. The decisive question we always face is “what is the optimal energy mix”?
At the Energy Capital Leaders Assembly in November 2019, Mark Radka, UN Environment and Paula Pinho, European Commission shared their insights into achieving a low-carbon future and their Sustainable Development Goals. Read more here
The Secret Sauce – Five Things Stopping Institutional Investors Deploying Greater Capital into Renewable Energy
If executives are going to successfully access some of the $2 trillion a year in clean energy infrastructure being allocated, knowing what these investors look for is important. Much is written about why they are investing, but we asked our membership what holds them back from deploying capital.
Panellists described how the LNG “wave that has arrived” is heralding a final shift away from coal in the EU, which will lead to the final closure of coal-based power generation on the continent.
Latin America is a region that holds huge potential across all energy value chains. Many countries have achieved remarkable progress in isolation, like Uruguay, gradually achieving 100% renewable power. However, political risk remains the biggest barrier to entry.

The top headlines from March 2019 from the Latin America Clean Energy sector
As I climbed the Pyramid of the Sun, I thought about how we honor the sun today, in our own high-tech way, by building massive photovoltaic arrays to capture the electricity that can be generated from the sun’s energy.
By making LNG readily available and integrating it into current energy ecosystems, countries such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh could successfully achieve a shift to a low-carbon, stable energy system serving a new generation of customers.
What I have grown to love about the industry is how dynamic and challenging it is. With the constantly changing technologies, regulations and macroeconomic trends, there is never a dull moment.
I believe that most men do not intentionally exclude women and are unaware of how challenging it can be for women to succeed in the sector.
