We announced it in our 10-Year-Anniversary newsletter post: Strategies of big energy companies will be our second focus, complementing our analysis of international energy markets.

This happens against the background of two mega-trends in the energy sector:
(1) the global energy transition towards low-carbon solutions and renewable energy
(2) the melting-away of traditional industry boundaries: new and established players cross industry borders and develop new business models.

In our database we will try to cover the rapid changes across the sectors: from the leading manufacturers of solar modules to Big Oil, from global wind project developers to shale oil companies and battery makers. Our sample comprises about 100 companies (see attachment below). We will report important news, and we will rank, benchmark and compare companies and strategies: looking for leaders and laggards.

On this website and on our twitter account (@energycomment) we will publish some of our findings, starting in May 2019. If you prefer more systematic and regular information, please have a look at our bi-weekly newsletter GLOBAL ENERGY BRIEFING.
