Recently, the U.S. Department of Energy reported that the world’s primary energy needs will grow by 55 percent by the year 2030.
The energy industry can be defined as one of the most volatile industries in the world right now. Countries are examining trends of demand and consumption hoping to devise a strategy to curtail the economic aftermath of a possible depletion of resources. Companies and organizations are striving each day to slow a downturn in the industry by creating alternative energy resources.
How can businesses, corporations and individuals proactively help with the mounting issues of the energy industry? The need for strong ethical leadership arises and Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business graduates answer back by heading some of the industry’s leading corporations.
In this issue of the Baylor Business Review, we discuss the current situation and outlook of the nergy industry, hear from alumni working directly within the industry and follow students exploring alternative energy resources. We also reflect on the legacy left by Earl C. Hankamer, benefactor of the Hankamer School of Business.
