Energy Prices and Economic Growth

Economic growth and energy prices are inextricably linked. Soaring energy prices in Europe in the past five years have hampered growth in everything from manufacturing activity to consumer spending; the region’s destructive “de-growth” mantra has meant it’s the only region of the world to see an outright decline in energy consumption.  

Whether it’s developed economies like the US or emerging markets like India, the key challenge facing markets in coming years will be access to relatively cheap sources of energy.  Alternative energy technologies can play a role, but fossil fuels still account for well over 80% of global energy demand, so the production of commodities like oil and natural gas will need to rise to meet demand. In this session, we’ll examine some of the key energy commodities and sectors that will benefit from this growth.
