On October 13, 2015, Caspian Center for Energy and Environment (CCEE) of ADA University held a round-table discussion with BP’s Head of Russia and CIS Economics Dr. Vladimir Drebentsov on “BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2015.” During the presentation, Dr. Drebentsov highlighted changes in global energy production and consumption and their implications for prices, global fuel mix, and for global carbon dioxide emissions. The outlook finds that growth in primary energy consumption slowed to 0.8% in 2014. Aside from the brief decline during the Global Financial Crisis, this is slowest growth in energy demand since the late 1990’s. As in previous editions, the report notes growth was concentrated in emerging economies, with energy consumption in developed economies continuing to fall. The event, attended by students, representatives of embassies, international development agencies and public sector, was followed by a lively discussion and Q&A session.
