Neptune Energy “We need clear policy to further the energy transition”

Global energy demand is increasing and with climate agreements looming, the future of the energy mix will see major changes. We spoke to Lex de Groot, managing director of independent E&P company Neptune Energy Netherlands, on how he sees the respective roles of offshore wind, oil, gas and marine energy. While also touching upon cooperation between industries, something which will also be discussed during Offshore Wind Conference 2019.

“The way I see oil and gas moving forward is that it will be the most important energy source for decades to come”, states de Groot. “With every generation that walks on this earth, we see energy demand increasing by 25 per cent on average. So that means looking forward on how countries are developing and how populations are growing. There is a clear demand for energy and the only source we can use on the short term is oil and gas. And especially gas will play an important role. Gas, in the end, has the lowest carbon food print and as such will be important in both supplying energy as well as balancing energy supply.”
