BP’s Group Chief Economist, Christof Rýhl, one of the world’s most respected energy economists presented a 1 hr, live webinar on Thursday, May 2 at 4pm Sydney, Australia time.

The BP Energy Outlook contains the company’s projections of long-term energy trends. It builds on its Statistical Review of World Energy, to develop projections for world energy markets to 2030, taking into account of the potential evolution of the world economy, policy and technology.

Christof Rýhl manages BP’s global Economics Team, providing input into the firm’s commercial decisions. He presented the BP Energy Outlook 2030 findings and suggested how they will affect the world economy.

The outlook ‘base case’ reflects a ‘to the best of our knowledge’ assessment of the world’s likely path from today’s vantage point, drawing on expertise both within and outside the company. The outlook highlights the central role markets and well-designed policy can play to meet the duel challenge of solving the energy needs of billions of people who aspire to better lifestyles, and doing so in a way that is sustainable and secure. It also highlights potential alternative outcomes, underlining the uncertainties attached to any long term projection.
