The global energy outlook is fraught with uncertainty. Is oil running out? Can we produce electricity with less carbon? Will the future be nuclear? Can the sun fuel the economic growth of the future? Are there sufficient resources (capital, human, natural) to sustain the energy industry?
Consumers are feeling the impact of the global energy crisis with disruptions in supply or high prices constraining their budgets. However, ‘inside’ the energy industry, the effects are being felt at every level.
With such a wealth of natural resources in Africa, international energy companies have been quick to invest in the region. At the same time, the demand for energy in Africa has never been higher – indeed, many see the lack of reliable and affordable energy as an inhibitor to the growth and development of the economies. So discussing energy in Africa is a combination of supply challenges and demand problems – how to extract energy efficiently (either for use in the region or export) and how to solve the local infrastructural problems and fuel the economy.
The most compelling advantage Deloitte has is to provide strategic insight and direction to leverage the synergies of both ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ sectoral views. Deloitte also provides additional support to implement the outcomes of the strategic outlook and subsequent implementation planning. Globally, Deloitte member firms serve:
