Date:27th to 28th January 2020
Venue: Chatham House, London
Website: Chatham House
After more than 100 years of a world shaped by the geopolitics of hydrocarbons, the MENA region finds itself having to navigate the uncertainty of an energy transition and all that it implies for national, regional and global status quos. What does the transition mean for long-term oil demand? In the event of peak consumption, is a slow, managed decline possible? And what about other geopolitical or market factors that might come into play – the prospect of lower demand triggered by a global economic slowdown and a trade war, through to breakthroughs in new energy technologies – when this happens, what next? The 2020 Chatham House Middle East and North Africa Energy conference will address these questions and the key trends shaping the region’s energy future in the 21st century.
