World Energy Outlook post Copenhagen
About the Event:
Drawing on the results of the IEA's new World Energy Outlook 2009, Dr. Birol will provide a comprehensive update of global energy market trends in the aftermath of the Copenhagen climate meeting and the worst economic crisis since the Second World War. His remarks will also cover the WEO-2009's 450 Scenario -- which sets out a pathway for the energy sector to achieve a transition to a low-carbon world -- and the key findings of its in-depth assessment of the prospects for global gas markets, including the emergence of shale gas as an abundant and potentially low-cost source of supply in North America.
