2015 BP Energy Outlook 2035 with BP Chief Economist Spencer Dale

The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted a presentation and discussion of the 2015 edition of the BP Energy Outlook 2035 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 a discussion following the presentation.

Summary of the Second Roundtable on the Resilience of the Liquid Fuel Supply Chain in the New York Tri-State Area

In October 2014, the Center on Global Energy Policy hosted the second off-the-record roundtable on the resilience of the liquid fuel supply chain in the New York Tri-state area at Columbia University. The meeting brought together top federal, New York State, New Jersey and New York City energy and resilience officials with high-level representatives from the energy industry to discuss how to fortify the Tri-state region's liquid fuel supply chain in light of increasing risks posed by climate change, including Hurricane Sandy, and identify and recommend next steps to enhance regional coordination on this issue.

A summary of the roundtable is below, which highlights the key points made by participants without attribution to any specific participant in accordance with the Chatham House Rule. We hope you find it a valuable resource.
