Deloitte's Energy Predictions 2011 report focuses on sustainability in challenging conditions
New York, 19 October 2010 – Deloitte’s Global Energy & Resources Group today published its Energy Predictions 2011 report, the second year it has published its predictions for the year ahead. The report is based on in-depth interviews with clients, industry analysts, and senior energy practitioners from Deloitte member firms around the world.
Even as the global economic downturn begins to ease, the energy sector is still likely to experience challenging conditions entering 2011. Serving as a global and unified measure of economic recovery, the price of oil and the strength and sustainability of the recovery will impact the ways in which all forms of energy are produced and consumed.
“Energy plays a pivotal role in driving the global economy,” says Peter Bommel, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited Global Energy & Resources Industry Leader. “Anticipating the course of the energy and resources sector over the next twelve months is not easy, but Deloitte’s Energy Predictions Report aims to stimulate debate, inform of possible industry directions, and help identify opportunities and potential courses of action.”
