The industry’s transformation continues, and faced with a very different future and set of circumstances, fossil fuel companies and utilities are pursuing new business models to bridge current and prospective revenue gaps, better address changing customer needs and to build sustainable businesses for the future. In doing so, old business boundaries are breaking down, convergence is happening across the industry value chain, and just as old business models and revenue streams are diminishing, a new generation of customer and data-savvy competitors are increasingly encroaching on the business. What is the potential and ROI in new energy services? Is it too soon to write off traditional energy companies? Will they be able to play to their strengths of experience, capital, and customer relationships and reinvent themselves for the new energy world? How are they recalibrating their strategies and portfolios for a low-carbon, digitalised and decentralised energy world? How will oil and gas companies’ transformation journey be impacted by the new period of recovery?
