The Center on Global Energy Policy was honored to host the official US Launch of the BP Energy Outlook - 2017 Edition with Group Chief Economist Spencer Dale. The 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.
