The U.N. Conference on New and Renewable Sources of Energy: Response to the Challenge of the Global Energy Transition

Abstract:
The world community is being forced to navigate a transition, over the next few decades, to a future that must entail a radical shift away from dependence on hydrocarbons. The pressure for change arising from the 1973 "oil price shock" is mounting with each year, despite the periodic respites characterized as "oil gluts."
