Energy Infrastructure Investments to Power the Future

WITH LISA FERRARO, MANAGING DIRECTOR, ENERGY AND INFRASTRUCTURE PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT

Daily oil usage is expected to rise to over 100 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) by 20301; therefore, the market for oil, coal, natural gas, and alternative energy sources is steadily increasing. Although the United States is rapidly executing processes to develop alternative energy sources, most of the oil usage in the world is coming from developing countries that are using oil to build their infrastructure.

TIAA-CREF is actively investing in oil and natural gas; the organization understands natural gas is one of the main sources of clean energy and the recent fuel of choice for building new power plants. As the United States and the rest of the world continue to move toward more alternative energy projects, natural gas will be the bridge fuel used to advance toward a renewable energy solution.
