New climate and energy policies are proliferating in the wake of commitments made at the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference. Looking forward, this has significant implications. Implementing the Paris Agreement implies the roll out of global policies that will cut oil use. The 'Oil Market Futures' study by Cambridge Econometrics, ICCT and Poyry Consulting will provide the background for a debate on how climate policies will impact future oil prices.
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, participants will discuss the new study which examines the impacts of evolving policies, technologies, and security landscapes on oil prices, and vice-versa.
The presentation will be followed by a dialogue between Prof Dieter Helm, Professor of Energy Policy at the University of Oxford, and high level disputants before a panel debate between academics, NGOs and oil experts.
Other speakers include Nick Mabey, CEO and founder, E3G; Tarek Soliman, Senior Analyst, Investor Research, CDP; Paul Stephens, Distinguished Fellow, Energy, Environment & Resources, Chatham House; Pete Harrison, Transport Director, European Transport Foundation; Gareth Davies, Director, Poyry Energy Consulting. The event will be chaired by James Murray, Editor, Business Green.
