The energy industry faces tremendous challenges. Energy demand patterns are accelerating, while the traditional energy sources are becoming scarcer. The world is looking for innovative energy sources and for new energy supply structures. Big investment decisions will determine positions for the longer run, and have to be taken against the background of a multitude of uncertainties. These developments demand top performance of the finance professionals.
