In this podcast episode, we delve into the details of the latest World Energy Markets Observatory (WEMO), Capgemini’s annual thought leadership and research report that tracks the development and transformation of the energy markets around the world.

The 2020 edition of this report is like no other as it’s based on insights from 2019 and 2020, which turned out to be two very different scenarios due to the pandemic. The key question that the report asks is: How can the energy sector balance the competing priorities of addressing the immediate challenge related to COVID-19 pandemic, and taking drastic steps against climate change at the same time?

To answer this question, your host Claire Volkwyn is joined by experts and main contributors to the report, Philippe Vié, Energy & Utilities Sector Head at Capgemini, and Colette Lewiner, Senior Energy Advisor to the Capgemini Chairman.

Together, they discuss the implications of the pandemic on the energy markets and practical ideas for how utilities, policymakers and private companies can embrace a strategy that builds short-term resiliency while improving long-term sustainability.

This episode is brought to you in partnership with Capgemini.
