An Intensive 5-day Training Course

Understanding the Future of Energy

Emerging Energy Technologies and Markets

Course Introduction

Energy Industry is profoundly complex and interrelated – it is not just a problematic engineering challenge but a multi-dimensional social, political, environmental, and economic problem with mutual dependencies. Energy is critical to this civilization. It raises questions on using natural sciences, social science, resource management, and economics to solve some of our planet's most pressing concerns, from climate change to food security. Energy encompasses crude oil, refined products like gasoline and diesel, power, coal, natural gas, nuclear, and renewable energy sources. And it also includes the business of energy from an operational standpoint. Examining the future of energy and energy technologies are essential. Changes that are coming will have significant implications for corporations, industries, and entire economies. The future dynamics of the oil and gas supply will change. And these changes are likely to succeed the changes of recent years that we have seen during the so-called shale revolution.

Oil demand and natural gas demand are likely to rise sharply in the decade ahead, with China, India, emerging Asia, and other emerging markets at the epicenter of the surge in demand growth. Meanwhile, the most significant sources of additional marginal supply for oil and natural gas are set to come from the United States, which has historically been a significant net importer of hydrocarbons. This situation is a substantial change with the economy, supply chain, and even national security ramifications. The push against CO2 emissions and a push toward clean energy are likely to force a policy move away from coal across economies. This training course will critically examine future energy trends and highlight energy technologies options, opportunities, and risks.
