Unconventional Oil Symposium

While worldwide supplies of accessible oil are growing, the array of emerging unconventional oil is diversifying. These new oil sources pose important energy, environmental, security, and climate challenges for the private, public, and non-profit sectors.

On 9 January 2013, the ICCT in partnership with Carnegie’s Energy and Climate Program and the Energy Foundation held an illuminating discussion about the changes associated with new oil abundance in North America and worldwide. The video and transcripts from the events are available from the Carnegie Endowment website. The ICCT’s Fuels Lead Chris Malins spoke on “Policy and the Public Interest,” and Executive Director Drew Kodjak spoke in the final session on “Parsing the Oil Paradigm Shifts.”
