The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted the US-based release of the BP Energy Outlook - 2016 Edition with 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 as well as examining key uncertainties. Questions to be addressed in the 2016 edition include: What factors will shape energy markets over the next 20 years? What impact would a slowdown in global economic growth have on energy demand? How could agreements reached at COP21 affect energy consumption? Center Director Jason Bordoff moderated a discussion following the presentation.
