The energy sector's route to recovery

It's been 18 months since the outbreak of Covid-19 brought the global econonmy to a near halt, causing unprecedented disruption across industry - but now the signs are pointing firmly towards recovery. Countries are tentatively easing lockdown measures, markets are recovering and stimulus funding is helping to revive business and job markets. 

In this special report, we explore the energy sector's recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic by bringing together data, analysis and in-depth reports from GlobalData's energy sector publications and experts. 

We assess the sector's recovery so far by analysing trends in jobs, deals, investment and stock prices over the past year and looking into policies and market trends that are shaping the energy sector's path out of pandemic disruption. 

We also explore the future outlook for the energy sector, looking at investment and public funding, the impact of transformative technologies, and the policies shaping the future energy plans of countries around the world.

We review the latest data on public funding to assess whether nations' commitments match up with the 'green' recovery pledges made by many governments in the early days of the pandemic, take a look at key themes for the energy sector in 2021, and find out how the economic downturn has impacted the divide between leaders and laggards in the global energy transition.
