Energy: Trends for 2022

Three conditions stand out in particular for this year - and should have a global influence.

1st) Oil prices

Are climbing and most probably, will maintain their trajectory. International analysts point to more than USD 100/barrel this year.

2) Interest rates

The (US) Fed has shown that it will systematically raise interest rates in 2022 and even 2023.

3rd) Market volatility

American traders estimate that this year there will be large variations in the prices of financial assets.

Combining these three, we arrive at a scenario of severe increase in electricity prices.

The underlying message is: it would be worth creating alternatives that put your organization in a competitive position in this new environment.
