Technical excellence combined with worldwide industry experience across the energy and natural resources sectors
Our energy and natural resources team spans our global network with expertise across oil & gas, mining and natural resources and conventional power and renewables.
A series of geopolitical and market factors has driven volatility in the commodities markets and exerted downward pressure on profitability across the energy and natural resources sectors. In contrast to this, accelerated by the increasing global focus on tackling climate change, improving our approach to sustainability and the decreasing costs associated with renewable energy technologies, the renewable energy sector is growing at a pace. Navigating this new operational landscape presents a variety of challenges, but also opportunities, for which businesses in the sector need to be well prepared.
