Webinar: BP Energy Outlook - 2016 edition

Date: Monday, May 9
Time: 12:00pm San Diego (3:00pm Washington, DC; GMT/UTC – 7 hours)
Contact: Jacqueline Sanchez

BP Energy Outlook 2035What factors will shape energy markets over the next 20 years? What impact would a slowdown in global economic growth have on energy demand? How could agreements reached at COP21 affect energy consumption?
Join us for a discussion of the 2016 edition of BP’s Energy Outlook with Mark Finley, General Manager of Global Energy Markets at BP. The BP Energy Outlook outlines the “most likely” path for the global energy landscape - supply and demand - over the next 20 years, based on assumptions about future changes in policy, technology and the economy.


Beyond the base case, the BP Energy Outlook examines some of the key issues that will shape energy supply and demand through to 2035, and explores possible alternative outcomes:

  • What drives energy demand?
  • The shale revolution continues
  • Carbon emissions – more to do

    Finley’s presentation will be global in scope and will include specific discussion and focus on the North American dimensions of the outlook. Finley’s remarks will be followed by an interactive Q&A with the audience. If you are interested but unable to attend, please register anyway and we will send you the recording.

Webinar: Mexico’s Experience with Clean Energy

Date: March 18
Time: 10:00am San Diego (11:00 am Mexico City; GMT/UTC - 8 hours)
Contact: Jacqueline Sanchez

PRESENTATION






Francisco Xavier Salazar Diez de SollanoLast December, Mexico passed legislation focused on sustainable electric production and, more broadly, the country’s energy transition. The Energy Transition Law -- what many have called the final piece of the country’s historic energy overhaul -- seeks to regulate the sustainable use of energy and set clear procedures for the country's clean energy and emissions reductions goals and targets.

Through the Clean Energy and Energy Efficiency goals, Mexico aims to promote clean electric generation and compliance with standards established in the General Climate Change Law and Electric Industry Law. One of the new and innovative elements of the Energy Transition Law, is the creation of Clean Energy Certificates. The Certificates will be used as an incentive and compliance mechanism to boost generation from clean energy sources.

Join us for a webinar discussion on “Mexico’s Clean Energy Experience” with Francisco Xavier Salazar, the Institute of the Americas Regional Energy Integration Non-Resident Fellow. The webinar will be held Friday, March 18 at 10:00am San Diego (11am Mexico City; GMT/UTC - 8 hours).  

Salazar’s formal presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with the audience.

Argentina Energy RoundtableThis executive roundtable will assess Argentina’s unconventional resource potential against the backdrop of global energy realities and what they signify for Argentina’s energy outlook, including what may be called the energy transition. Panel discussions will focus on the potential to reinvigorate Argentina’s role in driving regional energy integration, the future for shale, in particular opportunities in the Vaca Muerta region, as well as the electric sector, renewable energy and sustainability.

Argentina’s election of Mauricio Macri has unleashed an up swell of interest and optimism for the country. The new president’s early actions have shone bright lights on a new outlook for foreign policy and Argentina’s international posture. Moreover, President Macri has made clear his intentions to boost the nation’s flagging economy and give the energy sector a needed shot in the arm. To wit, only a week into his term he declared an energy emergency through 2017 and with it powers to stave off outages.

Energy contributes around 5 percent of Argentina’s GDP and 6 percent of its export revenue. But these figures must rise if the country is to revitalize the energy sector as a motor for economic growth and a significant driver of reform. Once a major energy exporter and pioneer in the development of natural gas and regional integration, energy imports are now costing Argentina over $6 billion per year. The development of Vaca Muerta’s shale resources will require an estimated $200 billion.

But it’s not just about the country’s upstream or the shale and unconventional resource opportunities. Now is the perfect moment to review the myriad needs of Argentina’s energy infrastructure, power sector challenges, and ways to boost the deployment of renewables in the nation.  The new government’s energy policy must consider how to support sustainable development while balancing energy security concerns with increasing local community and climate impacts. After the historic climate agreement in Paris, countries including Argentina will begin to consider how best to redefine their energy mix. How to meet national emissions goals and make the business case for an energy transition will be key for the emerging role of renewable energy in Argentina.

AGENDA|PRESENTACIONES|FOTOS

Argentina Energy RoundtableEsta Mesa Redonda analizará el potencial de los recursos no convencionales de Argentina teniendo en cuenta la realidad actual en materia de energía a nivel global y lo que ésta significa para el panorama energético del país, incluso lo que se puede llamar una transición energética.  Las discusiones se enfocarán en la posibilidad de que Argentina retome el liderazgo en la integración energética regional, el futuro del gas shale, en particular las oportunidades en Vaca Muerta, así como las proyecciones para el sector eléctrico, las energías renovables y la sostenibilidad.

La elección del Presidente Mauricio Macri ha generado una gran ola de interés y optimismo en el país. Las acciones tomadas por Macri a pocos días de asumir la presidencia muestran la luz de una nueva postura y política internacional. Además, el Presidente Macri ha manifestado sus intenciones claras de estimular la débil economía argentina y rescatar su sector energético. Por lo que a tan solo una semana de su mandato, declaró emergencia energética hasta el 2017 con el firme propósito de prevenir más cortes de luz.

La energía contribuye con cerca del 5% del PIB de Argentina y el 6% de ingresos producto de sus exportaciones, pero estas cifras aumentarán si el país planea modernizar el sector energético a fin de que sea un motor para el crecimiento económico e impulsor de reformas. El que una vez fuera uno de los mayores exportadores de energía y pionero en el desarrollo de gas natural e integración regional, hoy en día las importaciones de energía de Argentina le cuestan más de 6 mil millones de dólares al año. Los desarrollos de recursos de shale en Vaca Muerta van a requerir aproximadamente 200 mil millones de dólares.

Pero no todo se trata de las oportunidades en upstream o en shale y los recursos no convencionales de Argentina, éste es el momento ideal para revisar las innumerables necesidades de Argentina como son la infraestructura energética, los retos del sector eléctrico y los mecanismos para fomentar el despliegue de energías renovables. La política energética de la nueva administración deberá tener en cuenta cómo respaldar un desarrollo sostenible y al mismo tiempo equilibrar los problemas de seguridad energética con el impacto tanto de las comunidades locales como del clima. Luego del histórico acuerdo sobre clima de Paris, los países, incluido Argentina, van a tener que considerar cómo redefinir su matriz energética.  Cómo cumplir con las metas nacionales de reducir las emisiones de carbono y lograr vender la idea de una transición energética serán temas cruciales para el papel emergente de la energía renovable en Argentina.
