the energy issue

Markets use energy and trade energy. But what kinds, at what prices, and at what cost to the planet? Those questions fueled the Energy Issue’s trip around the world. To get the answers, we joined with Bloomberg News’s energy teams and BloombergNEF, Bloomberg LP’s primary research service on energy transition. Guyana, South America’s only English-speaking country, has fewer than 1 million people. Most are very poor. A huge oil discovery offshore will soon gush money for Exxon Mobil Corp. But what about the Guyanese people? Kevin Crowley takes a look in “There Will Be Oil” (page 50). Pakistan, also impoverished, needs cheap power for the world’s fifth-largest population. With support from China, it’s still mining coal. In “Where Coal Won’t Die” (page 62), Adam Majendie and Faseeh Mangi investigate Asia’s coal addiction.…

how can investors capitalize on the changing energy landscape?

NO ONE DISPUTES THAT change is coming to the energy sector. A decade ago, integrated oil and gas companies such as Exxon Mobil Corp. and Chevron Corp. seemed like solid investments. They made up the biggest sub-index in the S&P 500, accounting for 7.8%. And yet, by this July, that same group had dropped to 11th place, with a 2.4% weighting. Over the past five years, the index featuring the once-mighty oil and gas majors has underperformed the S&P Global Clean Energy Index, composed of solar, wind, and other renewable energy stocks. How can investors position themselves for the future? Bloomberg News energy reporters around the world solicited opinions and insights from experts with an array of backgrounds. The responses are diverse, but one common theme emerges: Change means opportunity. “Renewable…

the end of the hydrocarbon era

DUSTIN YELLIN, a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based artist whose intricate 3D photomontages adorn the likes of New York’s Lincoln Center, wants to draw your gaze to climate change. Not in a subtle way, either. He plans to stand an oil supertanker on its end in the ground—a structure soaring 1,000 feet into the air. The Bridge, as Yellin dubs it, would repurpose a piece of energy infrastructure as a ready-made artwork, complete with elevators and a viewing platform for visitors, capturing the sheer scale of our energy system. The difficulty of hoisting thousands of tons of steel into the air would itself symbolize the monumental challenge of retooling our hydrocarbon-fueled civilization in the face of climate change. The world depends on coal, oil, and natural gas for about four-fifths of its energy—just as it…

SWITZERLAND, endowed with the Alps and thousands of lakes, is a global leader in sustainability. Hydroelectric dams, such as the one shown here at Lac d’Emosson in southern Valais, have supplied most of the nation’s electricity for about 50 years. That share will probably increase after voters in 2017 approved a law that will phase out nuclear plants and increase the use of renewable energy, including hydropower. Lac d’Emosson, on the French border, had its first dam in 1925. The 590-foot arch dam standing today, completed in 1973, is part of one of Europe’s biggest hydroelectric projects. Visitors can tour the structure and the archosaur tracks preserved at a geological site nearby. Here, the fossils are separate from the fuel. For news on Swiss energy, type {TNI SWISS NRG <GO>}.

league tables show how fast the green bond market is growing

AN INCREASINGLY LARGE corner of the bond world is going green as investors rush to get exposure to debt that will be used for environmentally conscious purposes. A decade ago the green bond market consisted of a mere handful of deals totaling less than $1 billion. Now it’s raised more than $100 billion for the third consecutive year. What’s driving that growth? One key: The money raised in green bond deals goes toward goals that are valued by both buyers and sellers, says Christopher Flensborg, head of climate and sustainable finance at Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken. “As long as there is a mutual appreciation between investors and issuers of the societal and market benefits of use-of-proceeds language, then the green and sustainable bond market will continue its rapid growth,” he says.
