Risks, Returns and Investments around the Energy Sector

One third of the world’s investments are made in countries who have a well-developed financial systems or access to foreign capital. Recent activities show the investment trend is more towards countries with a good energy transition mix and less towards countries perceived as riskier.

Energy transition has led to moving quite a few oil and gas companies shifting into the cross-sector development with potential development of diversification and new business development. But these decisions are also reliant on supply chain issues, policies and the actual demand index.

The session on finance and investment explores the critical aspects of making investment available and attractive to investors in quest for making energy accessible to all.

  • How to make the sector attractive for investments?
  • Making finance available in volatile regions, lacking proper access and right to energy
  • Investing in energy transition as the more viable option for favourable financial metrices
  • Complex factors affecting investment decisions (supply chain, synergy and reputational risks)
  • Identifying the right investment channels against each economy’s requirements – what works the best to maximise ROI
