In 2013 around USD1.6 trillion was invested to provide consumers with energy, in real terms this figure has doubled compared to 2000.

More than USD2 trillion annual investment in the world is necessary over coming 2 decades:

  • Oil & gas, upstream and downstream
  • Electricity, power generation and transmission

Total investment required till 2035 in above sectors: USD48 trillion, of which 40 trillions in energy supply of which 23 trillions in fossil fuels (extraction, transport and refining).

USD10 trillion in power generation (6 trillions in renewables) and 7 trillions in transmission and distribution.

-Infrastructure and Metals-mining

This sector together with energy sector provide basic and indispensable ingredients for human and economic development, the population growth up to 9.6 billion people by 2050 and urbanization of 5 billion in 2030 versus 3.5 billion today requires more:

  • Base metals: copper, lead, nickel, zinc, iron etc
  • Ports, airports, housing, road, water etc

-Agricultural Commodities

  • CORN

The rational of the above 3 sectors of Energy, Infrastructure and Commodities is not only based on the expertise of Newway Advisory and its network but also justified by their interconnection due to the following factors:

The average world population growth is around 80 million per year, further urbanization is a fact that increases all human needs.

According to FAO more than 800 million people are still chronically undernourished.

According to International Energy Agency, 1.2 billion people have no access to electricity (mainly in Asia and Africa 50/50).

Therefore it's a necessity and duty to contribute to provide all populations with food, water, energy and infrastructure for a better Human Development Index.
