The Global Energy Outlook to 2040

On February 5, 2014, the Global Energy Security Forum of the School of International and Public Affairs will present the Global Energy Outlook to 2040. The event will take place from 9 am to 12 pm at the MARC Pavilion on the FIU Modesto Maidique Campus. The Global Energy Security Forum has been presenting the Global Energy Outlook every year since 2003 and it remains one of the best attended presentations at FIU. This half-day conference explores the global energy context within which the world will implement new energy policies and measures to address global warming. Mr. Nick Jones of ExxonMobil will present an assessment of energy supply and demand through 2040. He will discuss the link between economic progress and energy consumption and examine the underlying factors shaping energy supply and demand challenges around the world. In addition, the presentation will cover unconventional gas production known as “fracking,” the growing demand for power generation and what the energy industry is doing to address the twin issues of global warming and climate change.

Nick Jones is an Energy Advisor in ExxonMobil’s Corporate Strategic Planning Department. He has worked for ExxonMobil since 2001 in a variety of technical and management positions. In his current capacity, he is responsible for assessing economic and energy trends, emerging energy technologies, and related market and public policy issues around the world.
