The Evolving Global Energy and Resources Landscape: Law, Policy and Economics - Conference 25th & 26th June 2018

CEPMLP is pleased to announce that the 2nd Dundee Energy Forum will be held in Dundee on the 25th and 26th June 2018.

The event follows the highly successful CEPMLP@40 anniversary seminar in May 2017. CEPMLP will be convening this Forum jointly with the International Energy Forum (IEF).

In the context of the transition to a low carbon economy and the shale gas and oil revolution, the global energy and resources landscape is indeed evolving rapidly, in terms of the energy mix, energy sources, interdependence of energy and other mineral resources, and changing roles of producers and consumers.

With an overarching theme of The Evolving Global Energy and Resources Landscape: Law, Policy and Economics, the 2nd Dundee Energy Forum will address global energy markets, infrastructure and investments in renewables, and in conventional and non-conventional fossil energy. The Forum aims to provide a platform for academics and analysts, policy makers, and industry participants to work together in identifying key problems and possible solutions. In line with the mission of the IEF, the emphasis will be on cooperative approaches that span producers, consumers and transit states. These approaches should combine insights into the roles played by law, economics and policy as drivers or facilitators of the evolving energy and resources landscape. The Forum will provide for the focused exchange of such insights.
