Energy Geopolitics and the New World Order – the implications for Brazil
17 March 2015 | 5.45pm
Taylor Wessing, 5 New Street Square, London EC4A 3TW
The world energy market is undergoing a historic shift. A dramatic drop in oil prices, an ongoing conflict and unrest in major oil producers, shale oil production propelling the US as an oil exporter and the historic US-China agreement on climate change, to name but a few. These events are contributing to a new world order with serious consequences for energy producing and consuming nations. Lord Howell of Guildford and Dr Irene Mia will share their views on the new energy geopolitics, the shifts in energy markets, trade and investment flows, and climate change goals as well as the consequences for the largest economies in Latin America. Dr Carole Nakhle will moderate the discussion. The event will be followed by a networking reception.
