The illusion of a smooth energy transition was swept away in 2021, with the drive toward decarbonization running headlong into the reality of energy markets. It is now clear that the transition and its effects are permeating all aspects of supply and demand, from the chaos in European natural gas, to producer capital restraint in the oil patch, to the rising impact of renewable fuels and, of course, the escalating roadblocks to pipeline construction. Gone are the days when traditional energy markets operated independently of the energy transition. Today the markets for crude oil, natural gas, and NGLs are inextricably tied to renewables, decarbonization, and sustainability. It’s simply impossible to understand energy market behavior without having a solid grasp of how these factors are tied together. That is what School of Energy Spring 2022 is all about! In today’s RBN blog — a blatant advertorial — we’ll highlight how our upcoming conference integrates existing market dynamics with prospects for the energy transition.
In observance of today’s holiday, we are revisiting a recently published blog discussing our upcoming School of Energy. If you didn’t read it then, this is your opportunity to see what you missed!
First, a brief synopsis of School of Energy Spring 2022. It is scheduled for May 17-18, in-person (finally!!) at The Houstonian in Houston. We’ve reorganized the curriculum one more time, this time assessing the most important developments that energy markets must deal with in the real world of today, in the context of a lower-carbon future that is bringing radical changes in how energy commodities are produced, transported and used. As always, we’ll start with the basics of what makes energy markets tick, work through hands-on models of energy fundamentals, and review RBN’s forecasts for what lies ahead. Then we’ll get into what we believe are the most important hydrocarbon-related issues in the energy transition. That includes carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration, hydrogen, and renewable fuels.
