Post-Pandemic: What is the Future of Energy?

There are many ways society changes and adapts after major crises, such as wars, geopolitical events, economic recessions, environmental disasters and, of course, pandemics. What is the future of energy systems after COVID-19? Will the climate agenda be hindered, or will it roar back with even more vigour?

We also cover the historic OPEC Plus production cut agreement made over the Easter long weekend. The group agreed to cut production by 9.7 MMB/d over the next several months with ongoing curtailments for the next two years. Will the cartel comply with these cuts? Is the curtailment large enough considering the collapse of global oil demand? Will other non-OPEC producers contribute?
