Bold business solutions are needed for the new energy era in India and the rest of the world. This also entails bold HR solutions. The radical new thrust on solar and other renewable is just one aspect of the transformation that is going to sweep across the energy space.
Energy-Environment interface is going to determine the global agenda as well as individual lifestyles in the twenty-first century. The 21st COP held as Paris in 2016 sets the tone for the remainder of the century.
The need of the hour is to have fuel without fear. The fear of climate change, of devastated lands, lost wildlife, weakened lungs! The need of the hour is also to eliminate energy poverty. Benign and affordable energy abundance is the ideal the global community is striving for. There are decisive moves to break the technological and economic inertia. Different scenarios are being deliberated in the energy space. Expert entrepreneurs like Tony Seba have predicted that renewables will completely replace fossil fuels by 2030. Even if this may not come about by 2030, defossilizing energy is the key driver of the global energy agenda.
Energy sector is going to deal with creative discontinuities. The discontinuities are bound to have impact on the HR priorities and practices. In view of this energy sector may have to deal with more challenges on the HR front compared to some other sectors which either already dealt with major discontinuities or are at a slower change curve.
The need for an integrated energy perspective at the national, regional and the global level has been repeatedly highlighted by numerous experts and agencies. Oil & Gas, Coal, and Renewable Energy have to be seen together as an integrated portfolio of services. The consumer is not interested in the form of energy. He is interested in sustainable energy supply at a competitive price. This opens up newer opportunities as well as more difficult challenges for energy players. In fact, every member of the global human community is an energy stakeholder and is watching with interest the developments in the energy space.
In view of the centrality of the energy sector, the need for in-depth and continuous deliberations on energy issues with a view to finding out viable energy solutions cannot be over emphasized. Obviously, HR will have a key role in promoting energy solutions for the future which is going to be increasingly more complex.
In a future marked by competitiveness through radical energy productivity, an equally productive HR approach will be required. That is what this Summit seeks to look at.
