    Peak Oil and the Long Descent Down the Mountain

    Peak Oil and the Long Descent Down the Mountain

    Electric vehicles, plastic alternatives, electrification of industrial processes – and more – are set to cut into demand for oil. In fact, we may have already reached a peak for the amount of oil produced in a single year, an idea known as ‘peak oil’. This week, Switched On speaks with oil demand analyst David Doherty. He will tell us about what peak oil means, how it is more than an academic concept, and how oil producers are managing this change – pivoting their business models, or going all-in on black gold.
    This episode is based on BloombergNEF's flagship report, New Energy Outlook 2020. BNEF clients can access this report on bnef.com or BNEF Mobile, or at BNEF on the Bloomberg Terminal.

    Amazon, Walmart, and Microsoft Compete to Have the Least Impact

    A net-zero target is achieved when a country or company balances out its greenhouse gas emissions with other activities that store, reduce or offset those emissions. So in the end, what you’re putting up into the air is effectively, well, nothing. This week on the show, Switched On speaks with BNEF corporate sustainability analyst Kyle Harrison about what is driving the many corporate net zero announcements of late, what net zero actually means in practice, and the bumpy ride ahead for those going down this road.
    This episode is based on a report titled Corporate Net-Zero Targets Primer: Jump on the Bandwagon. BNEF clients can access this report on bnef.com or BNEF Mobile, or at BNEF on the Bloomberg Terminal.
