Creating sustainable energy while protecting the environment and reaffirming corporate citizenship is one of the great challenges of this century. The Leaders in Global Energy lecture series is the centerpiece of an initiative by Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) to identify solutions to this challenge.
SIPA presents Dr. Fatih Birol, Chief Economist, Chief Economist of the International Energy Agency.
Dr. Birol oversees the annual World Energy Outlook, the flagship publication of the IEA and the most authoritative source for energy analysis and projections. World Energy Outlook 2011 provides the latest energy demand and supply projections for different future scenarios, broken down by country, fuel and sector.
The Leaders in Global Energy series consists of formal lectures, panel discussions, and informal talks by distinguished thought leaders in energy from across the government, corporate, and NGO sectors.
