It accounts for the multi-faceted nature of global energy policy challenges and broadens discussions of these beyond the prevalent debates about oil supply. It analyzes global energy policy challenges across the dimensions of markets, development, sustainability, and security, and identifies key global policy. challenges for the future. It comprises newly-commissioned research by an international team of scholars and energy policy practitioners.
