Brainstorming - May 18,19, Paris

In May this year we will be holding the 28th OIES Annual Brainstorming meeting in Paris. The meeting brings together around thirty participants from academia, energy companies, financial institutions, governments and international organisations for a wide-ranging discussion on topical energy issues with the aim of identifying the main trends shaping energy markets and energy policy in the short to medium term. The discussion is summarised in a detailed report circulated to the participants. The meeting this year will cover the following broad themes:
• The world economy
• The changing geopolitics of energy
• The dynamics of crude oil and petroleum products markets
• The oil and gas industry and investment patterns in the energy sector
• Gas, LNG markets, and pricing mechanisms
• COP 21 and its implications on the energy scene and policy

In practice, the proposals are as much about preventing back-sliding into national mechanisms and a retreat from collective EU goals as they are about making forward leaps in European energy policy. The hole at the Energy Union’s heart is lack of governance and coordination at the EU level. “Europe's Long Energy Journey: Towards an Energy Union?".
