Westwood Global Energy Group

The Westwood Global Energy Group is home to some of the most respected solutions in energy market research and intelligence. We provide the actionable insight that businesses, industry bodies and investors need to answer their most strategic, technical and commercial questions. We differentiate ourselves by focussing on our specialisms, quality, and adaptability.

We are committed to helping the oil and gas and broader energy industry navigate the Energy Transition successfully. As a result, we have created a new business unit (BU) focused on the transition and are developing solutions and capabilities to support our clients as the industry and their business evolve.

The Role

As the oil and gas industry adapts to the energy transition, it is becoming increasingly important to be able to account for and manage emissions across the value chain. Several E&Ps have now announced voluntary targets to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, and are increasingly targeting investment in carbon management solutions, such as carbon, capture and storage. The oil and gas supply chain is also looking to make their contribution to managing emissions, and support their customers as they transition to a lower carbon energy portfolio.

Working within the new Energy Transition BU and reporting directly to the Head of Energy Transition, you will lead the Group’s analysis on carbon and emissions analysis. Working collaboratively with the research and consulting teams, you will develop a centre of excellence for carbon and emissions related tools, data, insight and thought leadership to support the business. You will also support the development of new market intelligence solutions related to carbon management technologies, which are aligned to client needs.

The role will primarily be based in London but may require occasional International travel.
