Future visions for a world in transformation
The global energy industry is facing major challenges. Demand continues on the rise in response to economic development and population growth. In addition, meanwhile, the industry needs to undertake mitigation measures to reduce the emissions associated with the consumption of energy. Climate change-related risks have not only boosted the demand for products with low impact on emissions, but also increased the inclusion of renewable sources.
The transportation sector, the main destination of oil and gas industry products, is one of the important transformational powers in this scenario, which includes transportation services based on digital applications, increased the supply of electric vehicles, and the appearance of autonomous vehicles, among other factors.
All of this comes under an even broader technological transformation context, the reach of which transcends and shapes the energy industry. The convergence of a group of technologies, the applications of which are growing exponentially, has been drawing the attention of specialists to a possible new industrial revolution.
