Those of us tracking the future of energy can be roughly divided into two camps: those that believe that solar + wind (plus storage) define the future, and those that don't. And each camp often points to its own set of data to prove its point.
It's refreshing, then, when a company that has interests in both conventional AND renewable energy releases its vision of the future. DNV.GL's 2017 Energy Transition Outlook is a thoughtful and well-researched work, informed by researchers with professional interests in oil, gas, solar and wind -- DNV.GL provides consulting services in all of those sectors.
So, regardless of which camp you identify yourself, DNV.GL's report is a good starting point for discussions!
