The Brazilian Institute for Petroleum, Gas and Biofuels – IBP and Catavento formed a partnership at the end of 2014 in order to consolidate a long term vision for the energy sector. The project developed during 2015 had 3 stages. In the first one, Catavento mapped the main macro trends that could impact the demand and supply for energy in the next decades. Catavento’s methodology used a wide compilation of studies available in more than 35 institutes, as well as interviews with around 40 relevant stakeholders, including specialists and sector’s executives. The project results are available here.

The project’s second and third stages aimed for recommendations regarding issues prioritization and the Institute’s operating model. Perceptions from members of the executive committee and council members were taken into account, as well as the importance of specific issues for the oil and gas industry’s long term agenda. The suggested prioritization of actions was supported by a benchmark analysis of relevant energy think tanks operating models and by the IBP’s vision itself.
