In our seventh year of writing and publishing The Energy Regulation and Markets Review, we have seen dramatic changes in global energy policies. Europe has experienced a strong economic rebound, which has allowed many countries to dedicate increased resources to the infrastructure needs of the energy sector, including for renewables. While the United States commenced efforts to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, the signatories to the Paris Agreement countries have continued to make efforts to reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs). There is still a significant need to invest in infrastructure, and we have seen significant investment throughout the supply chains in the oil, gas and power sectors globally. The 2011 Fukushima nuclear incident continues to impact energy policy in many countries, and we continue to see extensive liberalisation of the energy sector. Oil prices have started to rebound somewhat, which presents some hope to those countries that remain dependent upon oil prices for national revenue.
