New York, NY 10005
Join over 200 energy executives at the 6th annual Global Energy Outlook Forum - Fuel Fight: Environment Meets Economics for an in-depth insight into the world's most pressing energy issues.
The battle for fuel burns hot. Oil price volatility ebbs and flows with Middle East instability and rise of revolution. The US Shale boom has left Natural Gas prices at record lows, causing some producers to abate drilling, while the international community invests. Its safety remains a global concern, yet nuclear energy is the most potent of power sources. Renewables are on the rocks facing cheaper, more reliable alternatives. And, while onerous regulations have put a strain on Coal production and use, the black rock remains the cheapest, most widely used fuel stock, worldwide. Can environment contend with an ever-hungry economy?
