Climate change represents a major challenge for the energy industry; consequences can be seen worldwide and immediate action is needed. Management skills and innovation are key to overcome the current difficulties in the industry.
The Roundtable on Natural Gas as a Bridge to a Renewable Energy Future organised by ESCP and its Energy Management Centre (EMC) was held on 21st April, 2016 at the ESCP Paris campus, and it was a big success!
The meeting brought together top energy experts, researchers and attracted students from other programmes who shared the latest on the key drivers for energy demand and supply going forward, the implications of COP21 for the energy sector, and what the future holds for gas, as a transition fuel in the new energy landscape.
