On February 22, 2016 the International Energy Agency (IEA) released its Medium Term Oil Market Report, projecting how global oil supply, demand and trade will evolve over the next five years at a time of historic upheaval in the global oil market. And oil is just one of the ways the global energy system is being transformed by new technologies, shifts in traditional supply and demand dynamics and growing concerns about climate change and energy poverty. On this episode of Columbia Energy Exchange, Dr. Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency, sat down with host Jason Bordoff to discuss these and other changes shaping the global energy outlook.
