Synopsis

Spencer will consider the outlook for global energy markets over the next 20 years, and some of the key issues and uncertainties this raises for the energy industry. How will the energy system respond to the dual challenge of providing ‘more energy and less carbon’? What role are oil and natural gas likely to play as energy markets transition to a lower carbon energy system? What more needs to be done to ensure the global energy system is on a pathway consistent with meeting the Paris climate goals?
