Varro, Laszlo, and Stefan Pfenninger. ”The Global Energy Challenge — An IEA View.” Presentation at the ESC Symposium 2017: Global Energy Challenge, ETH Zurich, 3 April 2017, TIB AV-Portal, 32:11, https://doi.org/10.5446/35686. CC BY-NC-ND 2.5 CH.

This joint presentation by Varro Laszlo and Stefan Pfenninger for the ESC Symposium 2017: Global Energy Challenge provides a framework to understand the economics behind energy consumption in the past, present, and future. Pfenninger works with the Climate Policy Group and discusses various energy futures with Laszlo, the chief economist for the International Energy Agency (IEA). The overarching question is how the energy sector can predict the future when so many significant, large-scale transitions have been overlooked or were unforeseen in the past. 

The aim of the Energy Science Center (ESC) Symposium 2017: Global Energy Challenge was to ask how global corporations, institutional players and first-tier research institutions are reacting to the new, global challenges in the energy sector? At the symposium, global stakeholders presented their visions and strategies, which were then challenged by ETH faculty members and researchers. (Source: TIB AV-Portal)
