Bipartisan Policy Center – Investment vs Divestment: The Role of the Oil & Gas Industry in a Net-Zero Future

The pace and scale of the energy transition will need to increase significantly to meet net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Fossil fuels currently drive more than 80% of global primary energy despite rapid growth in low-carbon technologies such as wind and solar in recent decades.

Is divestment from oil and gas the fastest route toward success or is the most sensible path based on accelerated public and private investment in advanced technology development in the oil and gas industry? Please join us for a conversation on this timely topic with Kevin Book, Managing Director of ClearView Energy Partners, followed by a panel discussion.
