Energy: Big investments, rising urgency

The U.S. energy sector enters 2024 on something of a roll. Oil and gas companies are bringing more product than ever to market and many have made remarkable efficiency improvements in recent years. In addition, big acquisition plans by ExxonMobil, Chevron and Occidental will produce lots of knock-on effects and possibly contribute to a slowing in capital spending.

Electric utilities, meanwhile, and other players are investing billions in renewable projects and grid improvements – although not always without incident or stumbles. But energy-efficiency initiatives across the country and the world are far more likely to pick up momentum than to fade.

Here are a handful of pieces from some of our energy brands that help set the stage for the year ahead:
