2015 BP Energy Outlook 2035 with BP Chief Economist Spencer Dale

Past Event

February 25, 2015

7:30 am - 9:00 am

The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted a presentation and discussion of the 2015 edition of the BP Energy Outlook 2035 (to be released on February 17), with BP Group Chief Economist Spencer Dale. The BP Energy Outlook attempts to describe the “most likely” trajectory of the global energy system based upon assumptions around economic and population growth as well as developments in policy and technology. Questions addressed included: – Which fuels will gain – and lose – global market share? – What is the outlook for US tight oil and shale gas supply, and what will the US energy renaissance of recent years mean for global markets into the future? – What changes are likely for China (the world’s biggest energy consumer)? – What are the implications for CO2 emissions? – And, with the oil price in the spotlight, what are the forces that will influence energy prices over the decades to come? Center Director Jason Bordoff moderated the discussion following the presentation.
