Balancing Competing Energy Policy Goals: can we find an affordable solution to delivering secure sustainable energy ? - Conference Sponsors


BP Economics Team

The BP EconomicsTeam is responsible for the preparation of the BP Statistical Review and BP 2035 Energy Outlook.

The BP Statistical Review of World Energy has become widely recognised as a key source of data in energy markets. For over 60 years, the Statistical Review Energy has provided objective and globally consistent data on world energy markets. Building on this wealth of data, the BP Energy Outlook identifies long-term energy trends, and then develops projections for world energy markets to 2035. How much more energy will the world need in the future? Are there enough energy resources to meet growing demand? What role will different forms of energy play? And which countries will produce and consume the most energy? These are the kinds of questions BP’s economics team sets out to answer in the company’s Energy Outlook publication.  BP Statistical Review

Shell Scenarios

Shell has been developing scenarios to explore the future since the early 1970s. Scenarios are stories that consider “what if?” questions. Whereas forecasts focus on probabilities, scenarios consider a range of plausible futures and how these could emerge from the realities of today. They recognise that people hold beliefs and make choices that lead to outcomes. Our scenarios team considers changes such as in the global economic environment, geopolitics, resource stresses such as water, greenhouse gases, and energy supply and demand to help business leaders make better decisions.

The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) works to make sure the UK has secure, clean, affordable energy supplies and promote international action to mitigate climate change.

DECC’s recently published policy paper, Developing DECC’s Evidence Base sets out, for the first time, its  priority interests for developing evidence to underpin policy development and to learn from delivering polices. It builds on DECC’s Science and Innovation Strategy (2012), by taking a multidisciplinary assessment of our medium-term evidence needs. It helps the Department identify synergies between work areas, allowing areas to join up to achieve better value for money and better outcomes in undertaking analysis or commissioning research. It also provides the basis for considering DECC’s future research and analysis priorities.

It also provides the basis for considering DECC’s future research and analysis priorities.

The document highlights DECC’s commitment to open policy making; that we will widen access to the data and modelling associated with or generated through policy delivery. In addition to improving transparency, this will help others contribute effectively to the policy debate, including by developing additional analysis or tools.

We’re keen to speak to the external research community about how your research and analysis might be directed to have maximum impact on the policy making process. Contact us via

Warwick Business School
