These roundtables are exclusively for S&P Global Platts SPS customers.

Please join us for our ongoing series of roundtables making up this years’ Platts Analytics Future Energy Commodity Outlook Series 2020.

We’re taking our roundtable series online – we’ll still be providing engaging, interactive discussions around key drivers of long-term energy trajectories – we are looking to capture the characteristics of an interactive feel for the roundtables in our follow up sessions in the coming weeks.

These roundtable sessions will not be recorded so your live participation is required.
