Access for Women in Energy, in partnership with the Brazilian Chamber of Commerce organised a joint event on Energy Geopolitics, the New World Order and the Implications for Brazil. The event took place on 17th March 2015.
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, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Crystol Energy and Co-Chairman of AccessWIE, and Dr Irene Mia, Latin America Director at Economist Intelligence Unit, shared 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, CEO of Crystol Energy and Director of AccessWIE, moderated the discussion.
