2020 has been a year of dramatic and rapid change for the energy industry: Consumption fell by up
to 20%
during peak lockdown periods; global greenhouse gas emissions dropped to the lowest levels since World War
II; and
the share of renewables surged to more than 40% in some markets. But is this progress? Are these changes
sustainable? Will these actions help the world reach our climate change goals?

These are some of the key questions posed by the authors of the 22nd Edition of the World Energy
Observatory (WEMO), Capgemini’s annual thought leadership and research report that tracks the
development and
transformation of energy markets around the world. The latest edition of WEMO reveals how the global
pandemic has
altered the course of the industry—and what these points suggest about our ability to create
change in the future.

We invite you to join our experts as they review key findings from this year’s WEMO in a
webinar: In
pursuit of carbon neutrality: What the World Energy Markets Observatory reveals about our climate change and
transition goals.

Topics include:

  • The status of near- and long-term climate change goals outlined in the Paris Accord
  • How green recovery packages could accelerate sustainability efforts
  • Mitigating security of supply issues due to increased use of intermittent renewables
  • Oil & Gas majors’ carbon neutrality strategy
  • Electricity and gas retail market recovery
  • Utility financial impact from COVID-19 and other geopolitical issues
  • Capgemini’s key recommendations for a sustainable future
