Climate Strategy Dialogue
Discovering potential risks and new business opportunities associated with climate strategies.
The IHS Climate Strategy Dialogue focuses on forward-looking research designed to assess the impact of current and anticipated climate change policy developments globally. Drawing on intellectual resources, modeling capabilities, and in-house databases from across IHS Energy, the Climate Strategy Dialogue brings substantial expertise to the nexus of energy and climate change.
Our analysis centers on the interplay of markets, policy, technology and consumer behavior in an increasingly carbon-constrained world. Through this approach, clients gain a clearer understanding of climate change issues affecting company strategies and industry competition.
The following entities can benefit from the dialogue to better understand risks and opportunities associated with climate change:
Who can benefit from this dialogue? How? Oil and gas companies Provide foresight on key climate change policy trends; assess oil and gas sector GHG emissions and resulting exposure to carbon regulation along with a greater understanding of the various emissions profiles across the oil and gas value chain. Electric utilities Review global CO2 emission forecasts that include sector break-outs along with updates on state, regional, and country-specific GHG policy trends. Analyze forecasts on the power generation mix reflecting growth of clean energy technologies, retirements of high emitting power sources, and the trajectory of CO2 allowance prices in different markets. Renewable energy developers Determine outlooks on the adoption and deployment of clean power technologies. Government agencies Evolve climate strategy rules and provide foresight on key climate change policy trends, including implications for the oil and gas sector.
