Palo Alto, CA, March 03, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Turmoil in Libya and other parts of northern Africa and the Middle East is once again focusing worldwide attention on oil prices and global energy markets. On March 24, AltaTerra Research will bring together two leading thinkers in the field of energy supply and demand to present the online briefing, “Macro Trends in Global Energy Markets: Essentials for Clean Energy and Sustainability Professionals.” Dr. Ripudaman Malhotra is co-author of the book “A Cubic Mile of Oil.” John Kemp is a senior analyst in commodities and energy for Thomson Reuters. The live online briefing starts at 9 a.m. PDT / 12 noon EDT. A recording will be available on-demand after the live event.
John Kemp will present a near-term view of global energy markets and market projections, including an examination of drivers, fundamental structures, and potential energy price scenarios over the next three to five years.
Dr. Malhotra will present an easy, intuitive way of understanding what is happening with energy markets and the long-term global energy supply and demand picture, as well as the data that informs this outlook. He will introduce the concept of a cubic mile of oil (CMO), which corresponds very closely to the world's current total annual consumption of crude oil and provides a clear way to compare energy sources with an easy-to-understand volumetric unit.
“It’s an eye-opening picture that describes vast scale challenges and opportunities for conventional and renewable energy generation, with significant implications for how organizations operate and do business,” remarked Don Bray, president of AltaTerra Research and moderator of the online briefing.
The online briefing is intended for professionals in energy and energy-intensive industries, clean technology, corporate/enterprise sustainability, product development, government policy, academia, and facilities and energy procurement.
Viewers will come away from the session with a strategic, long-term framework for describing global energy supply and demand that is easy to understand and explain; new perspectives on energy markets over the next three to five years and key market drivers; and visual aids that will help to effectively communicate the challenges and opportunities in global energy markets, and to strategically frame the case for energy-related investments.

A limited number of press passes are available. Press pass requests may be submitted at www.altaterra.net/?presspass.
