The Impact of the War in Ukraine on the Energy Sector

Energy market participants face unprecedented uncertainty as a result of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Amidst several uncertain factors, including price volatility, policy changes, sanctions, investment exits, and disputes, the war could have ripple effects on all energy sources (including oil, coal, gas/LNG, hydrogen, and renewables) and market segments (upstream to downstream). The effects of the war could also influence approaches to the energy transition.

Offshore Energy Investments and Activities

The Special Issue aims to examine and provide information at the key issues related to the expected expansion of the offshore production of renewable energy, including wind and solar energy.
