The International Research Center for Energy and Economic Development (ICEED) is a non-profit organization that provides relevant information and research on national and international energy issues. ICEED, founded in 1974, continues its mission of disseminating global views of energy usage, sustainability, economic growth, and development through four avenues:
1) ICEED’S ENERGY CONFERENCES: These conferences are among the most well-established of their type. Representatives from 40-plus countries have joined in these informal exchanges of information among government officials, business leaders, and academia to discuss current trends in energy markets. We have just concluded the 42nd ICEED International Energy Conference (April 12-15, 2015 in Boulder, Colorado).
Since 1974 the ICEED has been organizing conferences unique in the mix of attendees and participants: high-ranking representatives and specialists in industry, finance, and national/multinational governmental agencies. The sessions are noted for their valuable contacts as well as the formal and informal exchange of views and data. Attendance at these conferences is by invitation and reservation only; attendees are sent by their respective agencies, companies, or institutions. The following issues were discussed at the 2015 conference.
• What are the ramifications of the decline in oil prices and might lasting structural changes ensue?
• What are the short-, medium-, and longer-term outlooks for oil prices?
• What are the global economic drivers that are forcing energy prices (both oil and natural gas) lower and will they continue their current trends?
• How will oil and gas suppliers respond to the drop in prices?
• Will U.S. shale production be derailed by the lower oil price environment and does the price decline spell the end of or major delay in the "shale revolution"?
• What will the oil supply picture entail in 2015, 2016, and beyond?
• Who are the winners and losers in the current energy price environment? What are the implications for the renewable energy sector and the automotive industry?
• How will non-OPEC and OPEC suppliers be affected by the current price environment? How does production from Libya and Iraq factor into the equation?
• How are geopolitics being shaped by the lower energy prices? How might regional blocs, e.g., the EU and the ASEAN, respond to energy security, trade, and supply issues?
2) THE JOURNAL OF ENERGY AND DEVELOPMENT: ICEED has published The Journal of Energy and Development since 1975. This biannual periodical covers international energy and development issues offering perspectives from authors around the world. Articles focus on energy-related topics, conservation, the environment, hydrocarbon development and management, alternative energy, sustainable economic development, macroeconomic trends, and policies of energy-producing and consuming countries. Past volumes and articles are now available for purchase at www.scribd.com/ICEED. Volume 39, joint issue of numbers 1 and 2, has been shipped to subscribers in October 2014. Volume 40, joint issue of numbers 1 and 2 will be shipped to subscribers in July 2015.
by Rimma Subhankulova and Richard Wheeler, which will appear in volume 40.
3) ICEED’S OCCASIONAL PAPERS & BOOKS: ICEED’s occasional papers series provides timely works by leaders in the fields of energy and the environment. Topics include the development of alternative energy, markets and deregulation, geopolitics, energy supply security, and environmental trends.
