In part one, Roland Rechtsteiner of Oliver Wyman joins us to discuss energy transition, perhaps the single biggest force of change in the commodities markets over the coming decade. Roland gives clarity on what energy transition is and what its impact will be.

Covid-19 is also accelerating the transition.
