The annual World Energy Issues Monitor provides
unique insight into what energy policymakers, CEOs
and leading experts identify as Critical Uncertainties
and Action Priorities.
The World Energy Issues Monitor provides a snapshot
of what keeps CEOs, Ministers and experts awake at
night in over 100 countries. The Monitor helps to define
the world energy agenda and its evolution over time.
It provides a high-level perception of what constitute
issues of critical uncertainty, in contrast to those that
require immediate action or act as developing signals
for the future. It is an essential tool for understanding
the complex and uncertain environment in which energy
leaders must operate, and a tool through which one
can challenge one’s own assumptions on the key drivers
within the energy landscape.
