Episode 88: Global Energy Supply and Demand with Kris Lance

By Kelly Barner | October 26, 2022

Although Europe’s energy challenges may be different than the ones faced in the United States, there isn’t any location or industry that isn’t being affected by the high prices or short supply of gas, oil, and electricity. 

In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes back Kris Lance, Senior Director at Una, for a recurring monthly conversation about current news stories.

Kris has experience in multiple industries and has his finger on the pulse of the trends and topics that procurement, sourcing, and supply chain professionals need to be aware of.


In this interview, Kris and Kelly talk about global challenges specifically related to energy supply and demand:

  • The fallout from the “leaks’ plaguing the Nord Stream pipeline in Europe, and how countries are working together to meet collective demand
  • OPEC’s recent decision to cut oil production
  • The complex decisions that have to be made when finding new sources of energy
  • How to balance the desire to become more sustainable with the realities of fuel consumption and supply
