The global energy landscape is rapidly changing. Traditional centers of demand are being overtaken by fast growing emerging markets. The energy mix is shifting, driven by technological improvements and environmental concerns. More than ever, the energy industry needs to adapt to meet those changing needs and demands. In this session, we’ll look at current key areas of change and what the short term and long term future of energy will look like. Chris will also address some of the political implications in Colorado with the upcoming election and have a Q&A session at the end.
