The global energy landscape is changing. Traditional centers of demand are being overtaken by fast-growing emerging markets, and the energy mix is shifting, driven by technological improvements and environmental concerns.
The BP Energy Outlook outlines the most likely path for energy demand based on assumptions about future changes in policy, technology and the economy. The Outlook also examines the challenges of the energy transition underway, including how to meet the world’s increasing demand for energy while also reducing carbon emissions.
At this event, BP's Mark Finley discussed some of the key issues that will shape energy supply and demand through 2035 and explored possible alternative outcomes.
