Global energy markets are increasingly volatile, as the balance towards renewable energy sources reduces incentives for investment in traditional oil and gas production. The BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2021 unpacks data related to energy supply and demand from the COVID-19 pandemic, along with sharp shifts in carbon emissions.
How did energy consumption and demand for oil differ in 2020 compared to other years? In what ways did this affect economies in the Middle East? What renewable energy sources are emerging in the region, and at what rate?
MEI is pleased to announce a webinar, hosted by Karen Young, senior fellow and Director of the Program on Economics and Energy at MEI, featuring a presentation of the 2021 Statistical Review’s key findings by Michael Cohen, chief U.S. economist and head of oil analysis at BP. Discussant Carole Nakhle, CEO of Crystol Energy, will provide analysis on the impacts most relevant to the MENA region.
