Carnegie’s Deborah Gordon joined Andreas Löschel, Jim Skea, and Wang Tao of the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy on a panel at Université Total - Energy Days to discuss the future of energy. Gordon discussed the new energy transition facing the United States as it shifts from oil scarcity to potential abundance. She identified the number of unknowns still affecting this transition and the future of these new resources, including fossil fuel price variability, changes in energy efficiency, and possible climate policy. Andreas Löschel, Jim Skea, and Wang Tao offered insights on the energy transitions that Germany, the U.K., and China are facing.
