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.
Capital projects are constrained by resources, where labour, concrete, steel and other critical inputs are facing increasingly competing demands. Take steel as a case in point. China’s construction boom needs steel;
Europe’s power stations need steel; the US gas industry pipelines need steel; the Japanese motor industry needs steel. Yet even with supply and demand aligned, the clamour for climate-change management raises questions about the wisdom of these investments in the first place.
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.
Deloitte currently has the broadest range of services and talent to conceptualise, synthesise and implement strategies developed across its global practices.
