Atlantic Council Global Energy Center is hosting a conversation with Spencer Dale, bp’s chief economist, to launch the 2021 Statistical Review of World Energy. Dale will discuss the year’s trends in energy supply and consumption, carbon emissions, and the global energy generation mix.
This event will take place virtually on Monday, July 12, 2021, from 8:30 am – 9:30 am.
COVID-19 disrupted oil markets, led to significant changes in patterns of electricity use, and heightened ambitions to decarbonize the global energy system. As governments and corporations across the world set ambitious goals to reduce carbon emissions, they also searched for novel ways to ensure energy security, satisfy demand, and build more resilient and flexible energy systems.
In this moderated discussion, Spencer Dale will discuss the key findings and analysis in bp’s latest annual Statistical Review of World Energy and evaluate challenges and opportunities for the energy industry under three decarbonization scenarios: rapid, net-zero, and business-as-usual. Key trends to be addressed include growth in renewables, investments in new energy technologies, supply chain shifts, and global competition for new and existing fuels. Please join this conversation via the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone. If you wish to join the question and answer period, you must join by app or web.
