As part of a two-day conference hosted by Central European University, former BP official and chair of the King's Policy Institute at King's College Nick Butler discussed the prospects for shale gas discovery and extraction and its potential to change energy markets in Europe, North America, and around the globe.
Butler compared shale to other conventional and non-conventional sources, and then engaged in a lively dialogue with conference participants about prospects for energy consumption and use in the years ahead.
His keynote address was all part of the 9th annual Transatlantic Energy Governance Dialogue, co-hosted by the Global Public Policy Institute, the Brookings Institution, and CEU. This year's theme: "Shale Gas. A Game Changer for European Energy Security?"
