Sustainability is the practice of maintaining processes of productivity indefinitely—natural or human made—by replacing resources used with resources of equal or greater value without degrading or endangering natural biotic systems. Sustainable development binds together concern for the natural systems with the social, political, and economic challenges faced by humanity.

The three pillars of sustainable development are the economy, energy and the environment.  Interaction between these three pillars sustains a growing global economy which provides employment for millions of people and a decent standard of living in a healthy environment and the energy means that help enhance the quality of our life and mobility. The global economy has to be in a continuous state of healthy growth if it is to be able to feed 7.5 billion of people.

Since the withdrawal of the United States from the Nuclear Deal with Iran and its decision to re-introduce sanctions on Iran particularly Iranian oil exports, analysts and experts alike have been competing with each other in their projections about how much Iran will lose from its oil exports as a result of the sanctions. Their projections have ranged from 500,000 barrels a day (b/d) to 1.5 million barrels a day (mbd) out of estimated Iranian oil exports of 2.125 mbd.

Most of these projections were, in my opinion, based on faulty assumptions and lack of understanding of the dynamics of the global oil market and virtually bordering on daydreaming and wishful thinking.

Some experts are projecting a peak oil demand by 2036. Others like Fitch Ratings are saying that greater product awareness and technological changes could fast track the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) that could plausibly lead to a peak oil demand before 2030.

It is, however, debatable as to whether a peak oil demand could be reached during the 21st century. The one certain thing is that oil is expected to remain the world’s primary energy source throughout the 21st century and probably far beyond. A major underpinning factor is the growing world population.

While everyone has been watching the Strait of Hormuz amid rising tension between the US and Iran, a chokepoint on the other side of the Arabian Peninsula is now at the centre of attention.

The recent attack by the Houthi rebels in Yemen on two Saudi oil tankers each carrying 1 million barrels of oil in the Strait of Bab al-Mandeb and Saudi Arabia’s suspension of oil shipments through the Strait have demonstrated how vulnerable the world’s key oil chokepoints are and how easy it is to disrupt global oil traffic.

The great rivalry between the United States and China will shape the 21st century. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a great power will never voluntarily surrender pride of place to a challenger. The United States is the pre-eminent great power. China is now its challenger.

For over forty years energy expectations have been riddled with internal contradictions, and all too often a failure to recognise complexity, the nature and scale of the challenges to be faced, and resultant uncertainty. Key elements of Shell’s “World of Internal Contradictions” scenario, issued

Economic instruments, particularly carbon tax and emissions trading scheme (ETS), have recently attracted the most attention to combat climate change because of their cost efficency to reduce emissions. Introducing these in Asia, where most of the countries do not currently have emission reduction.

We are aiming for an ideal world powered only by renewables but today's economy still needs oil and gas.

It's key for any energy programme to have a holistic approach and cover all these industries and the MSc in Energy Management does exactly that.

This epic video follows three participants as they expand their horizons in London, Paris and Singapore. Find out how the programme has changed their lives, their outlooks, and their career prospects.

The trip included visits to: The U.S. Department of State, Center for Strategic & International Studies, Library of Congress, GE Ventures, Accenture Strategy Energy, Tellurian plant, Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig Museum and Education Center. They also attended the launch of BP’s 2018 Statistical Review at the Atlantic Council’s premises.

Madame Nicole Fontaine: a passion for Europe until her last breath

A great figure of Europe has just passed away. The European flame will last, thanks to her commitment, throughout her life.

Nicole Fontaine was a woman and a friend who always carried and fostered the values of Europe deep within her.

Like Europe, the roots of Nicole Fontaine were Christian. She once was assistant secretary general, and delegate for Catholic Education in France. The subject of her PhD thesis in public law was private confessional education under contract with the state in France. It became a reference research work, and was published four times.
