A fundamental restructuring during the global energy transition

This event is free to NCAC-USAEE members

Please join NCAC-USAEE for an in depth discussion about the evolving role that oil will play in the energy transition. BP recently released its new Energy Outlook in mid September in line with a shift in the company’s strategy. The discussion will focus on how BP’s outlook differs from subsequent reports looking at the long term energy mix, the role of electrification and energy efficiency in oil demand profiles, and the implications for fossil fuel producers. 

Registration will close on the prior day, December 1, with registrants receiving a Zoom link that evening. Or access the event recording afterward by logging into with your member credentials.
