The Future of Energy (Part 1)
The Paris Agreement on Climate Change once again made climate protection and CO2 emissions a topic of global discussion. But measures to reduce CO2 emissions already influence our business not only since Paris.
How will climate protection affect our industry? And what do oil and gas companies have to do to still be successful in 2030? These questions are being discussed at length in our industry.
We are using this as an opportunity to explore the issue of “The Future of Energy” in a series of blog articles.
We start by taking the industry’s temperature with Laszlo Varro, the Chief Economist of the International Energy Agency.
By the time we went to Paris, the expectations were very high, but the overall feeling dominated, that we can acutally do this. There was a culmination of previous efforts and the pieces of the puzzle came together in Paris.

PARIS — a non-committal romance or indeed much more?
Laszlo Varro is Chief Economist at the International Energy Agency. In our interview, the Hungarian expert talks about the reasons why the climate conference in Paris was more successful than its predecessors, the framework for an effective European Energy policy and why gas and hydrogen will have great opportunities in the future.
