The morning of Economic Forums, 18 May 2016
In the wake of the COP21 and several months before the COP22, which was held on 7–18 November in Marrakech, energy transition appears to be, more than ever, the main lever in the fight against climate change.
The necessary change in the ways that energy is produced and used in transportation, buildings, and industry will provide many opportunities for Arab and European companies.
In the context of low oil prices, which complicates the economic equation, the speakers explained how the wealth of renewable energies and the rapid urbanisation of the Arab world could foster the energy transition.
Debate chaired by Dominique Pialot, journalist for La Tribune (a weekly financial newspaper)
