The tables are turning! The immediate crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic and the oil crisis will change the energy sector immediately and irrevocably. In this reality, more complex than ever, new energy business paradigms may emerge. New values may become dominant, now the fragility of our economic system has become visible. Companies that have existed for years may leave the playing field after the crisis, or at least have to reconsider their strategies. What do energy companies have to do in order to survive? How can they help to solve the unprecedented challenges the world faces? Speaker Bert Stuij gives his very tentative views on the future given all the uncertainties and is willing to answer your questions on this precarious topic.
- The crises we face
- How to stay competitive on the mid- and long term
- An energy sector as part of the solution
- Shifting values and paradigms
