Normally, I would do my predications for the year ahead in the form of a blog but this is not normal times!

This time I am doing in the form of a podcast with the help of my good friend Laurent Segalen! 

In this Episode, its Nostradamus vs. Cassandra: Laurent and Gerard share their predictions for 2021. 

1) “The Empire strikes back”, legacy players in the Energy and Automotive sectors will bounce back

2) The unstoppable development of renewables 

3) The SPACs valuation hang-over, most of them imploding after reaching unjustifiable valuations

4) The tipping point in EVs production and adoption 

5) The renaissance of the Carbon markets 

Your access to Member Features is limited.

6) The growing leadership of China in the Energy Transition… 

and much more topics that we unveil and will dig more into during the season…

"Predictions are hard -- especially about the future." That said, this was the most credible and grounded set of predictions for near term energy markets I've heard in a long time. Good show, guys!

I suppose that means there's virtually no chance that any of the predictions will turn out to be correct. Is "conservation of craziness" a thing?

"'The Empire Strikes Back', legacy players in the Energy and Automotive sectors will bounce back...

The unstoppable development of renewables..."

Sure, there's a chance that kooky, hi-tech fantasy from the 1970s might come true,  but my money's on "The Empire Strikes Back"!
