Abstract

The shift to cleaner forms of energy must happen as quickly as possible in order to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. However, the viability of the available possibilities in terms of energy is something that needs to be analyzed so that the studies may be carried out based on trajectories that are able to meet human requirements in all their guises. Thus, the purpose of this study is to identify the opportunities and problems associated with the transition to a cleaner energy source, with a particular focus on the oil industry. These opportunities and challenges are broken down according to the environmental, economic, technological, and social dimensions. In particular, the paper titled “Net Zero by 2050 A Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector” that was published by the International Energy Agency (IEA) is evaluated. The findings suggest that oil will continue to play an important role, mainly in the transportation business, the petrochemical industry, and fundamental industry; nevertheless, adjustments to the low carbon scenario will be required. The significance of businesses in the oil and gas industry is also brought to light. Act in conjunction with national governments to increase energy access and the exchange of technological information while simultaneously lowering overall usage.
