The world's appetite for energy is on the rise - and it will increase even more sharply as emerging nations continue to develop. The United States is increasing its energy production and reducing its energy imports. Meantime, demand from China and continued volatility in the Middle East are sending the price of oil ever higher. How will the world energy market change in the next few years? Will the balance between fossil fuels and renewables change in any meaningful way? Can we provide vast populations in the developing world with electricity? How will we handle the challenge while preserving the environment? This panel will explore the world's energy future.
