Diversifying into renewable energy sources

11:15 AM, 8th February 2021

Nowadays, when a person is commuting from home to work, rather than being concerned about the traffic situation, he or she is more worried about the rising fuel costs. The price of fuel is steadily rising, touching Rs 89 from earlier Rs 78 per litre (approx. in India). Along with the rising costs of good and services, the increase in fuel prices is also adding to the common man’s burden.

The oil & gas industry was already passing through a rough patch and then it was pushed into deeper ground with the Covid-19 outbreak. What could have taken years to pan out was hastened in just a matter of few months in 2020.

In the new scenario, the oil & gas industry is now forced to make tough choices to be able to succeed moving forward. Many of the oil giants are currently re-thinking their strategies and looking for new ways of steering growth for the organizations. Some of the new approaches that can be looked into are: Growing the portfolio for renewable energy sources and clean energy; Making more investments in environment-friendly, socially responsible and impact-focused investing; Implementing advanced technologies and setting up a new age future of work environment; and Collaborate and consolidate in a low-priced environment.

Moreover, as countries and various governments are making a shift towards alternate energy, cleaner and renewable fuel segments will witness heavy investments by oil & gas majors across the world. This will be fuelled by the market change that the costs of solar energy and solar photovoltaic are coming down and are being compared with fossil fuel energy cost.

In the given new strategies that oil & gas companies can choose from, many are already looking to diversify heavily into renewables and clean energy sources.
