FUELING OUR FUTURE: THE GEOPOLITICS AND ECONOMICS OF ENERGY IN THE 21ST CENTURY With seven billion people in the world (nine billion projected by 2050), many of whom live in rapidly developing countries, the need for modern technologies with their attendant energy demands is increasing at an exponential rate. Will it be possible to provide sufficient energy for this generation and the next? How will the energy race change global economies and politics?
A North American Energy Renaissance: The U.S. as an Energy Superpower - Implications and Challenges With the natural gas and shale oil boom, the U.S. is poised to become an increasingly significant energy exporter. The latest Department of Energy report recommends the U.S. become a natural gas exporter. The North American energy renaissance has the possibility to change the geopolitics of energy around the world, potentially challenging the OPEC cartel and significantly increasing manufacturing activity in the United States. How will this affect U.S. relations with its energy allies and competitors? What will this hydrocarbon boom mean for the future of renewables? Pre-registration is required
