Map Talk - 2nd edition

Changing Times



The lockdown continues in many part of the world, but the new normal has already begun. As I mentioned last month Petroleum Economist Cartographic, along with the rest of the staff of Petroleum Economist, are working from home full-time. An unlikely transition at the turn of the year!

	 Detailing production and consumption of renewable energy around the world, this unique map enables you to pinpoint installed production capacity for hydro; onshore wind; offshore wind; solar; geothermal; marine; and biomass, with each energy type clearly labeled with its own icon for ease of recognition. Stay ahead of your competitors - quickly spot regional trends and potential areas for development to enhance your company's presence within the industry.

But that’s not the only transition we are dealing with at the moment, because the energy sector as a whole, has gone all-in for the Energy Transition. As always, we like to keep abreast of everything that is happening in the energy sphere, so we have made a concerted effort to keep on top of developments. We are diligently researching and mapping renewable projects such as wind (both onshore and offshore, including floating), solar (both PV and CSP) as well as hydro, tidal and geothermal. We published our first GLOBAL RENEWABLE ENERGY MAP back in 2012, in association with PWC, but things have moved on at pace since then.


Hydrogen is another exciting area, which appears to be grabbing a lot of attention at the moment. The number of recent webcasts available seems to be a good gauge of the topicality of a subject. We will be bringing these areas to life, in our own unique way, with print maps, digital mapping applications and also in association with our sister data service, Energy Web Atlas (EWA).

Petroleum Economist and our sister data division Energy Web Atlas are developing a number of databases and interactive mapping applications that cover the Energy Transition. Hydrogen, wind, solar, tidal, hydroelectric, geothermal and wave sectors are being research globally.
Mapping the new energy world

The PE Map Guys are always keen to meet the industry in person and display our new mapping but due to the current global Coronavirus pandemic we are unable to attend the international conferences and exhibitions we had planned to due to event cancellations or travel restrictions.


We hope in time that these restrictions will be lifted and we hope to be able to see you at an industry event in the near future.
