PE launches Transition Economist and Hydrogen Economist services

LONDON - The PE Media Network, publisher of Petroleum Economist, the leading global information service for the full hydrocarbon value chain, is bringing the same analytical depth and rigorous editorial standards to two rapidly-evolving sectors, the energy transition and the emerging hydrogen economy.

PE journalists have always gone beyond the hype to uncover what really matters, delivering exclusive, value-add intelligence from a global network of dedicated correspondents and expert guest contributors. And they are uniquely supported by PE Maps, the energy industry’s leading cartographic department.

“PE has always taken its subscribers beyond the superficial and offered a deep dive into what really matters on the largest issues in the hydrocarbons sector,” says PE’s editor-in-chief Peter Ramsay. “I really look forward to expanding this approach fully into transition and hydrogen.”

Demand response

During 2020, PE ran an exhaustive reader survey from which two things became immediately clear. There is huge demand for the in-depth analysis PE already provides on hydrocarbons to be applied to the business strategies that will guide the energy industry to net-zero emissions. And a similar appetite exists around the strategies that will help foster an international hydrogen economy.

“Ever since I joined PE, I have been fascinated by the sea change through which the energy sector has been going,” says Alastair O’Dell, who will edit both new services. “PE has been delving deeper into transition and hydrogen themes for many months now, and I am hugely excited to formalize this with two new products.”

Full service

Transition Economist and Hydrogen Economist, as well as Petroleum Economist, will each have their own dedicated websites, with enhanced multimedia features including video webcasts, podcasts, interactive maps and data services. As well as proving daily actionable intelligence to its subscribers, each service will offer a range of dedicated email alerts, from regular news updates to sector-specific summaries on a weekly or monthly basis. And all three titles will showcase the whitepapers and special reports from our PE Insight Centre industry partners, as well as bespoke surveys gauging the views of the global PE audience.

“It is all about responding to customer demand,” says PE managing director Elliot Jacobs. “The two new services are only part—albeit a hugely important plank—of the evolution of PE as a modern multimedia, multi-channel option for energy industry information and communication.”
