Investing Across the Global Energy Landscape

For decades, the world has wrestled with an energy trilemma in balancing three goals: energy security and reliability, universal access to affordable energy, and mitigating and avoiding environmental harm.

Navigating this unprecedented and uncertain energy landscape is critical for long-term investors for four key reasons:

  • Energy is critical for everything humans do.
  • Energy security is national security.
  • The energy transition—the shift towards electrification and a low-carbon energy mix—creates an array of attractive new investment opportunities.
  • The inescapable arithmetic of global energy demand and supply means that fossil fuels will remain a major source of energy supply for decades to come—despite the ongoing and necessary transition to a low-carbon economy.
