BP Energy Outlook – 2017 Edition

Jump to section


The BP Energy Outlook  identifies long-term energy trends, building on the BP Statistical Review of World Energy, and then develops projections for world energy markets to 2035, taking account of the potential evolution of the world economy, policy, and technology.

Bob Dudley, group chief executive and Spencer Dale, group chief economist will launch the 2017 BP Energy Outlook. Spencer will share BP’s Outlook for the global landscape over the next 20 years, highlight some of the key issues that raises, and explore possible alternative outcomes.

The Energy Outlook contributes to the wider debate on global energy issues by asking key questions. Which fuels will gain – and lose – global market share?  What changes are likely for China (the world’s biggest energy consumer)? What are the implications for CO2 emissions?  What are the forces that will influence energy prices over the decades to come?

More information  about  the Energy Outlook series can be found  on BP’s website

In the event that this meeting is oversubscribed, priority will be given those whose memberships are up to date  on  January 16th .
