Event 26.04.16 | Oil Market Futures: A Debate on the Impact of Evolving Policies and Technologies on the Geopolitics of Oil

The European Climate Foundation (ECF) and Carnegie Europe are pleased to invite you to our upcoming event, entitled “Oil Market Futures” – A debate on the impact of evolving policies and technologies on the geopolitics of oil.

26 April, 3:30pm–6:00pm

Royal Museum of Arts and History, Cinquantennaire Park, Brussels

New climate and energy policies are proliferating in the wake of commitments made at the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference in Paris. As a result, the foundations of future oil demand will be shaken—with potentially dramatic impacts on oil prices and price volatility in the decades ahead.

Carnegie Europe in partnership with the European Climate Foundation will convene over 100 experts from the European institutions, EU member states, think tanks, NGOs and the private sector to explore future oil market scenarios.

Phil Summerton, Director of Cambridge Econometrics, will present a new study commissioned by the ECF that examines the impacts of evolving policies, technologies and security landscapes on oil prices, as well as broader economic effects.

The event will feature two working sessions on the geopolitics of oil security and on policy choices for the Energy Union, with keynote remarks by Pawel Olejarnik, Energy Analyst for the World Energy Outlook at the International Energy Agency, and Mechthild Wörsdörfer, Director for Energy Policy at the Directorate General for Energy of the European Commission. Representatives from the World Economic Forum, the Centre for European Reform, NATO, Transport and Environement, Bruegel, ETH Zurich, NATO Parliamentary Assembly will join them to discuss the issues on lively panels.
