Forthcoming Events

Here is some information about the events that are planned for the months ahead.

8th February at 19:00 - Talk on “A world in transition? An outlook for global energy and emissions to 2040”

This event will take place at the Cercle Munster. Our guest speaker will be Tim Gould of the International Energy Agency (IEA). The talk will be followed by an optional dinner.

Tim Gould co-designs and directs the work on the IEA’s World Energy Outlook, widely recognised as a key source of strategic insight into the future of global energy, and is a principal author of the Outlook series of publications.
He studied Russian and History at Hertford College, Oxford, and his early professional career focused on Russia, the Caspian and Eastern Europe; he also has a post-graduate diploma in international economics and international relations from the School of Advanced International Studies of Johns Hopkins University.

He will speak about the changes under way in global energy and what they might mean for future energy security as well as global efforts to tackle climate change and improve air quality.
