S&P Global Platts’ analysis of key news and pricing issues from across the global shipping, natural gas, power, petrochemicals, agriculture, and coal markets.

Leaders in the public and private sector are faced with the possibility of more frequent and intense weather events — winter storms, heat waves, cyclones, wildfires — as anthropogenic climate change continues, and must decide whether they should “price in” the risk of such events in building more robust and sustainable energy infrastructure.

Michael Webber, chief technology officer at Energy Impact Partners, discusses the opportunities and challenges to that approach with Mark Watson, S&P Global Platts senior editor for North American electricity and gas, and Kieran Kemmerer, power sector analyst at Platts Analytics.
