Globalisation and the need for a secure, affordable energy supply go hand-in-hand. Economic development is dependent on sufficient sources of energy—oil, gas, electricity, coal, alternative fuels and others. In a world of volatile energy prices, uncertain sources of new energy supply, aggressive investor involvement, and intense regulatory scrutiny, fundamental changes are occurring within the power and gas industry. With historically high oil and gas prices driving the price of marginal power production, governments are seeking non-carbon based power sources and increasingly looking to alternative or cleaner energy sources, including nuclear, liquified natural gas (LNG), and coal gasification. Alternative energy sources, such as renewables and biofuels, have become a cause celebre with both environmentalists and industry executives. And with this evolving market backdrop, regulators are insisting on flawless energy delivery and stability in prices, while exercising close control over industry consolidation. As market forces continue to create challenges, distinctive strategy, business model evolution, financial capacity, regulatory innovation, and world class operations capabilities become table stakes for success.
