If there is one constant in our contemporary world, then it is the aspect of uncertainty. Taking decisions in a sector such as the energy sector is hard enough, taking decisions in the face of uncertainty is far worse. Uncertainty in the energy sector has manifested itself over the years in the fluctuation of oil prices, the radical advent of energy efficiency and new energy technologies, electric cars, the Fukushima incident, the rise of fracking technology, etc. etc. This is where scenario planning enters the picture. This book presents this tested methodology to deal with this and uses the case of Suriname to show this. Suriname is a small country in Latin-America which is even more pressed to take uncertainty into account because of its relative size. Providing a complete and in-depth review of scenario planning, the book subsequently ventures into strategic decision making for the long-run informed by the set of scenarios. This book has been lauded several times and is therefore exemplary for strategists, planners, policy makers, politicians, investors and students alike.
