Talk on 'The BP Statistical Review of World Energy'
Dr Kaushik Deb
Thursday, 17 August 2017 Add to Calendar 2017-08-17 13:00:00 2017-08-17 14:30:00 Asia/Kolkata Talk on 'The BP Statistical Review of World Energy' The BP Statistical Review of World Energy provides high-quality objective and globally consistent data on world energy markets. In this edition, we note that growth in global primary energy consumption remained low in 2016; and the fuel mix shifted away from coal towards lower carbon fuels. Energy markets were buffeted by two separate forces: the continued adjustment to the short-run cyclical shocks that have rocked energy markets in recent years, particularly the oil market; and the growing gravitational pull of the longer-run energy transition that is under way. 2016 was a year of both short-run adjustments and long-run transition, and this year’s Statistical Review shines a light on both influences. About the Speaker: Dr. Kaushik Deb is an economist at  BP in India where he is responsible for overseeing the analysis of natural gas markets in Group Economics, with a focus on LNG markets. Before BP, Kaushik was a Director at IDFC. He has two decades of research, consulting and teaching experience in a variety of infrastructure sectors, including sector restructuring studies, energy-environment-economy modeling, energy and environmental economics. Dr. Deb holds a D.Sc. in Applied Economics from ETH, Zurich and an MA in Economics from the Delhi School of Economics. The talk will be accompanied by lunch.
