BP Energy Outlook - 2017 Edition (1/31/17)

The energy world is in the midst of its greatest upheaval in a generation, redefining long-held geopolitical relationships with profound impacts on the global economy and environment. How do we balance the priorities of economic growth, energy security, and environmental sustainability?  The Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University is a leading resource for research and discussion that gets beyond the polarization that threatens to overwhelm the energy debate.  In each episode of this podcast series, we bring you a conversation among top energy experts drawn from industry, government, academia and civil society about our energy future.

The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted the official US Launch of the BP Energy Outlook - 2017 Edition with BP Group Chief Economist Spencer Dale. The http://www.bp.com/en/global/corporate/energy-economics/energy-outlook-20... target="_blank">BP Energy Outlook considers a base case, which outlines the “most likely” path for energy demand based on assumptions about future changes in policy, technology and the economy.  Beyond the base case, the Energy Outlook examines some of the key issues that will shape energy supply and demand through to 2035, and explores possible alternative outcomes. Center Director Jason Bordoff moderated a discussion following the presentation. You can find a copy of the report here: http://energypolicy.columbia.edu/events-calendar/bp-energy-outlook-2017-...
