Growth, Energy and Transition

Gjest: Sverre Alvik

Director Energy Transition Outlook


Med Vert: Silvija Seres

In this #LØRN podcast Silvija talks to the director of Energy Transition Outlook at DNV, Sverre AlvikAlvik explains how DNV works with efficient climate strategy and how the Energy Transition is creating new business opportunities and business models. They talk about the energy transaction outlook forecast (ETO), what it means, where the project comes from and why the most obvious solutions are also the hardest. 

What is your professional dream?
To be recognized as a person that advances the global energy transition and contributes to something amazingly important. 

What is your project at work, and why it is important?  
Responsible for DNV’s Energy Transition research and publications, important for both the future of our planet and humanity, our customers, and DNV’s own strategy. 

Why is it challenging, and how do you build the culture around this work? 
It´s extremely hard to forecast what will happen in the future. One thing is the technologies, where we have some degree of overview. Much more challenging is the policies and human behavior, assessing how they will develop. We research all these areas. 

Are there any interesting dilemmas?  
The tragedy of the commons makes individual behavioral change so extremely hard for climate change. 

How does its relation to sustainability, in simplest terms? 
All-encompassing, and contradictory for achieving both human sustainability and well-being in a modern world for 9bn people and still preserving the planet. 

What are your views on skills for the future?  
Digital, but also human understanding, as well as communication. 

Do you have a favorite quote?  
There is no planet B.
