​Today, fossil fuels still account for more than 80% of total global energy demand, with oil and gas representing approximately 57% of consumption. The energy transition will require sharp reductions in fossil fuel use by 2050 in order for the world to meet its greenhouse gas emissions goals. What are the implications for the oil and gas industry and the energy system as a whole during this transition? 

Join us for an Energy Policy Seminar featuring Donald Paul, Executive Director of the USC Energy Institute and the William M. Keck Professor of Energy Resources at the University of Southern California. Professor Paul will discuss transition opportunities and challenges for the fossil fuel industry, including the management of the historical oil and gas asset base. HKS Professor Henry Lee will moderate the Q&A.
