Key Messages for Energy Professionals:
The Energy Transition Study's early-release findings highlight critical messages for energy professionals. While 69% of respondents recognize the imperative nature of decarbonization and the energy transition in their long-term strategic direction, less than half have implemented energy transition strategies. However, over three-quarters (76%) of respondents have developed an energy transition strategy, reflecting the industry's commitment to change.
The study indicates that long-term business strategy is the leading reason for developing energy transition strategies. Respondents also identified growth potential and market competitiveness as key drivers, highlighting the significant business benefits of embracing sustainable practices.
In terms of investment priorities, renewable energy projects top the list, selected by 29% of respondents as their priority. Additionally, investments in alternative fuels, such as hydrogen and biomass, were identified by 23% of respondents. Reducing carbon intensity of existing operations was a priority for 33% of respondents, showcasing the growing focus on sustainability measures.
When it comes to investment destinations, solar PV took the lead in the last 12 months, with 34% of respondents choosing it as their primary investment technology. Looking ahead to the next three years, energy storage emerges as the top investment destination, with 38% of respondents indicating it as a critical focus area.
Top Areas of Investment in the Next Three Years
Moreover, 71% of respondents expect revenues from non-fossil fuel sources to increase over the next three years. Currently, 41% of respondents indicated that clean energy sources contribute between 0 to 20% of their overall revenues, with 14% expecting clean energy to contribute between 60 to 100% of their revenues in the future.
Regional considerations also play a role in the energy transition. About 31% of respondents stated that their businesses implement energy transition strategies differently based on regional variations. This reflects the need to tailor approaches to accommodate regional differences in strategy and policies.
The findings from Reuters Events' Energy Transition Study serve as an inspiration and a call to action for Sendero Energy Services and all energy professionals. They reaffirm our belief in the potential of renewable energy and the urgency of embracing sustainable practices. As we continue to lead in the renewable energy sector, we invite our partners, clients, and peers to join us in charting a greener, more sustainable energy landscape to benefit the planet and future generations. Together, let us embrace the renewable energy revolution and strive for a brighter, cleaner, and more prosperous future.
