The IEF was honoured to receive Dr Iván Martén of Boston Consulting Group’s (BCG) Energy Practice at our headquarters today. Dr Martén, who joined BCG in 1987 and is the global leader of the firm's Energy practice, delivered an IEF Lecture entitled “Geopolitics of Energy: Key Challenges” to a distinguished audience of diplomats, representatives from the energy and finance sectors and academia.
Dr Martén's presentation covered a wide range of market developments that are affecting energy demand, supply, and trade patterns, as well as their relationship to geopolitical factors. He highlighted how climate change challenges, the evolution of the energy mix, the impact of technology on production and consumption trends, the unpredictable nature of energy markets, and the impact of volatile oil prices on the competitiveness of nations are reshaping the world of energy.
