Event 20.04.16 | Oil Market Futures: Effects of Low-Carbon Transport Policies on Long-Term Oil Prices & the Wider Economy

The European Climate Foundation (ECF) and Third Generation Environmentalism (E3G) are pleased to invite you to our upcoming event, entitled “Oil Market Futures” – a debate on how climate policies are impacting future oil prices.

20 April,  2:30 – 6:00pm

London Stock Exchange, Paternoster Square, EC4M 7LS

New climate and energy policies are proliferating in the wake of commitments made at the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference in Paris. Looking forward, this has significant implications. Implementing the Paris Agreement implies the roll out of global policies that will cut oil use.

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. During the event, the European Climate Foundation will launch a new study that examines the impacts of evolving policies, technologies and security landscapes on oil prices, as well as broader economic effects.

The study results will be presented by Gareth DAVIES, Poyry Energy Consulting, followed by a keynote address from Barry GARDINER MP, Shadow Energy and Climate Minister. Professor Dieter HELM, Oxford University, will then share his views on the future of oil markets which will be commented by Tom BURKE, E3G, and Anthony HOBLEY, Carbon Tracker Initiative. The conference will end with a panel debate moderated by James MURRAY, BusinessGreen, with experts including:

  • Pete HARRISON, Transport Director, European Climate Foundation
  • Shane TOMLINSON, Senior Fellow, Energy, Environment and Resources, Chatham House
  • Tarek SOLIMAN, Senior Analyst, Investor Research, CDP
  • John COOPER, Director General, FuelsEurope
