Oxford Energy Day

2 October 2017, Maths Institute

Energy in Growing Economies

According to BP’s 2017 Energy Outlook, energy use in non-OECD countries is expected to increase by some 50%  and make up over two-thirds of global energy consumption by 2035.  This is lifting billions out of poverty, and underwriting the achievement of the millennium goals. How this increase is achieved, and whether it can be accelerated, is not only of interest for OECD countries. Opportunities to develop new models for providing energy uninhibited by existing infrastructure may provide lessons for others.

This event will bring together international speakers to discuss challenges and opportunities for growing economies.
