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!
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).
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.
