The World Energy Outlook 2018 is a thoroughly researched and respected report giving information to industry and policy makers alike. Tim Gould, Head of Supply Division, World Energy Outlook at International Energy Agency will be presenting the report, followed by two panel sessions where you have the opportunity to debate the future of the energy industry in response to their findings, as well as discussing how to navigate a route to a low carbon future.

Panel Discussions:

First panel: Is the Outlook predicting fine or stormy conditions ahead?
This panel's speakers will take a strategic view, considering the key trends and issues identified in the report. Additionally, they will examine what steps are needed to expedite transformation of the global energy system, in order to meet the Paris Agreement 2C commitment, and potentially go further to meet the 1.5C aspiration. Taking a global point of view, the panel will discuss what insights the IEA report gives policy makers, scientists and the wider industry. As well as the climate change challenge, what does the report signal regarding security of energy supply and energy prices in the next decade? Our panel will also deliberate the commercialisation and deployment of technologies that will aid the transition, as well as energy efficiency– an easy way to reduce demand and meet carbon targets but so often overlooked.

Second panel: Engaging and educating for success – building a sustainable energy industry
During the final panel, speakers will be asked to consider how we can effectively engage with individuals and larger communities and groups, including those who are not part of the energy industry. How do we establish a sensible, fact-based narrative about energy issues that inform clearly and concisely? What are we doing right and where do we need to improve? What are the skills the industry will need in the next 10-20 years and what will that workforce look like? How do we develop and encourage a steady pipeline of talent as well as improve diversity within the sector?  

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Chair: Malcolm Brinded CBE FREng FEI, President, Energy Institute
  • Tim Gould, Head of Supply Division, World Energy Outlook, International Energy Agency
  • Chris Stark, Chief Executive, Committee on Climate Change
  • Cristina Chapman, ESIOS Project Communications Manager, British Geological Survey
  • Joana Portugal Pereira, Senior Scientist, IPCC WG III TSU, and Centre for Environmental Policy, Imperial College London
  • Michael Jenner MEI, Director of Policy and Regulation, Sembcorp Utilities UK
  • James Thompson, CEO, Myriad Global Media
  • Kiro Tamer, Group Energy Advisor, Keltbray Group

Areas examined in the report:

  • Electricity: Due to the rise of low-carbon technologies demand is predicted to double in comparison to energy demand as a whole. IEA will reveal their predictions for the future power sector, how to keep up investment and supply and what percentage of our energy requirements electricity can meet.
  • Producer economies: Exploring how traditional oil and gas exporting countries can move forward in today's society and how it will impact their economies long-term.
