Group Chief Economist, BP
Senior Adviser, Energy and National Security Program, CSIS
The CSIS Energy and National Security Program hosted
Spencer Dale, Group Chief Economist at BP, to present BP's Statistical Review of World Energy 2015. The 64th annual edition of the review continues a tradition of providing objective, global data on energy markets to inform discussion, debate and decision-making. The review takes on important and timely questions such as: What changes to global oil production and consumption drove the sharp fall in oil prices in 2014? How did slower economic growth in China and other emerging markets impact energy consumption? How has continuing strong growth in US shale oil and gas production altered its importance as an energy producer? In the run-up to the UN climate change conference in Paris, where are CO 2 emissions rising and falling? Did the US remain the world’s leader in renewable energy use?
