Brookings Mountain West Lecture

When: Oct. 17, 2012, 6pm - 7pm
Campus Location: Greenspun Hall
Office/Remote Location: Auditorium

Brookings Mountain West presents "Natural Gas and Unconventional Oil: A New North American Energy Independence" a talk by Charles K. Ebinger, Director, Energy Security Initiative, Senior Fellow, Foreign Policy.

Following years of erosion in U.S. domestic oil production, the combination of plateauing U.S. oil demand, surging domestic unconventional oil production, and improving fracking technology offer the prospect of a reduction in the nation’s trade balance, as the $400 billion dollars currently spent overseas to pay for our oil addiction can be available for domestic concerns. This lecture will explore how the development of domestic energy resources, including natural gas, solar energy, nuclear fuel, and other alternatives represent a feasible move to create a new North American energy independence. 

Charles Ebinger has more than 35 years of experience specializing in international and domestic energy markets (oil, gas, coal, and nuclear) and the geopolitics of energy, with a particular focus on the Middle East, South Asia, Africa, the Arctic, and Antarctica. Ebinger has served as an energy policy advisor to over 50 governments on restructuring their state-owned energy sectors, privatization and the creation of regulatory regimes. He is an adjunct professor of electricity economics at Johns Hopkins Nitze School.
