Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines, the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City as we welcome Morgan Bazilian, Director, Payne Institute, presenting a hybrid seminar titled Shifts in Energy Geopolitics – Clean Energy on Thursday, November 10, 2022 from 8:05am – 9:20am (MT).

The landscape for global geopolitics has shifted meaningfully in recent years, given the renewed OPEC+ agreement and the Russia-Ukraine conflict. In particular, rising tensions between Russia and the West are bringing greater attention to energy geopolitics, as countries look to gain energy security though at a reasonable price. Governments promised ambitious emission reduction targets at COP26. But given the significant commodity price rise, they will have to weigh a fragile equilibrium. This session takes a deep dive into the political landscape for global energy commodities.

Key questions: How will geopolitics affect oil markets? How will it impact renewables? Are geopolitical maps being redrawn as energy transitions unfold?

For energy consumers, 2022 will be remembered as an annus horribilis. Skyrocketing prices have caused major economic pain and discontent the world over. Many governments have rushed to enact policies to alleviate the pain and avoid dire political consequences. But was the current situation inevitable or were the warning signs simply overlooked? What next for energy markets, policies and geopolitics?

Dr. Carole Nakhle is the Founder and CEO of multi-award winning Crystol Energy, an advisory, research and training company based in London.

With a unique breadth of experience spanning different stakeholders in the energy industry all around the world, Dr Nakhle has worked with major energy companies (Eni and Statoil) at the executive level, governments and policy makers (including Special Parliamentary Advisor in the UK), international organisations (Commonwealth Secretariat, IMF, UN and World Bank), academic institutions and specialized think tanks on a global scale.

She is active on the Governing Board of the Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI), and Advisory Boards of the Middle East Institute and Payne Institute at the Colorado School of Mines. She is a program advisor to the Washington based International Tax and Investment Centre and lead Energy Expert with the Geopolitical Intelligence Services. She is also involved in the OECD Policy Dialogue on Natural Resource-based Development and has contributed to the development of the organization’s Principles for Durable Extractive Contracts.

Dr Nakhle has lectured at leading academic institutions including: the Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford University, University of Surrey in the UK, the Graduate Institute in Switzerland, European University Institute in Italy, Saint Joseph University in Lebanon, the National Defense University in the USA and NATO Strategic Direction South Hub in Naples.

She founded the not-for-profit organisation ‘Access for Women in Energy’ in 2007, with the aim of supporting the development of women in the energy sector. She has also championed the development of similar initiatives in Ghana, Tunisia and the UAE, where she sits on ADIPEC’s Advisory Board for Inclusion and Diversity.

Her views on energy matters are highly regarded, with numerous articles in academic journals, newspapers and magazines to her credit. Dr Nakhle is an avid commentator on energy and geopolitics in the international media and major conferences and industry gatherings, in many countries. She has published two widely acclaimed books: Petroleum Taxation: Sharing the Wealth and Out of the Energy Labyrinth (co-authored with Lord David Howell, former Secretary of State for Energy in the UK).

In 2021, she was selected CEO of the Year 2021 in the UK by CEO Monthly Magazine. She was also awarded the prestigious Fellowship of the Energy Institute and has featured on the Energy Council’s list of Top Female Executives in the global energy industry. In 2017, she received the Honorary Professional Recognition Award from the Tunisian Minister of Energy, Mines & Renewable Energy.

Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Faculty Fellow Dr. Kathleen Hancock, Associate Professor of Political Science, Colorado School of Mines, Dr. Srinivas Parinandi, Assistant Professor of Political Science, University of Colorado Boulder, and Dr. Jonas Nahm,  Assistant Professor of Energy, Resources, and Environment at Johns Hopkins SAIS, presenting a virtual seminar on their new book titled Oxford Handbook of Energy Politics: Local and Global Politics of Energy on Friday, October 7, 2022 from 12:00pm – 12:50pm (MT).

Energy and politics have always been intertwined. Today, they are increasing complex, as we see in the energy transition in the US and other global regions, the pipeline politics of Russia, and the politics of solar in China. The Handbook’s 31 chapters cover all the major world regions and the key countries in energy politics.

Dr. Hancock is a specialist in the intersection of politics and energy.  Her research has focused on Russia and Eurasia, sub-Saharan Africa, and most recently the United States. Her research started with a focus on oil and gas pipeline politics.  She now focuses on the energy transition and the politics and policy of renewable energy and is the co-editor and author of three chapters in the Handbook. 

Dr. Parinandi is a specialist in American politics and public policy, predominantly focused on energy and economic issues. His research looks at the diffusion, or spread, of policy across the states and how that diffusion is accelerated or hindered by various factors. He is conducting a large scale study on how regulation influences firm-level compliance with renewable energy laws, and he is the co-author of one chapter in the Handbook.

Dr. Jonas Nahm is a political scientist whose research examines the intersection of climate policy, environmental politics, and economic and industrial policy. His book, “Collaborative Advantage: Forging Green Industries in the New Global Economy” (Oxford University Press, 2021), uses the development of renewable energy sectors to investigate the political economy of innovation and industrial development in global clean tech sectors. Prior to coming to Johns Hopkins SAIS, Jonas was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University. He holds a PhD in Political Science from MIT and speaks German and Mandarin Chinese.”

Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Fellow Josh Busby, Professor, LBJ School of Public Affairs, University of Texas-Austin, presenting a in person seminar titled States and Nature: The Effects of Climate Change on Security on Thursday, October 6, 2022 from 12:00pm – 1:00pm (MT) in the Boettcher Room, Arthur Lakes Library, Colorado School of Mines. 

Joshua Busby will talk about his new book States and Nature: The Effects of Climate Change on Security (Cambridge: 2022) and explore why climate change leads to negative security outcomes in some places and not others. He will draw from paired cases in his book, examining why drought led to famine in Somalia but not neighboring Ethiopia in the 2010s. He will explore how state capacity, political inclusion, and foreign aid intersect to lead to different dynamics in different contexts. Drawing from his own experience, he will discuss what role policy can play to prepare for a world of climate impacts.

Joshua Busby is a Professor at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas-Austin. In 2021-2022, he served as a Senior Advisor for Climate at the U.S. Department of Defense. He is the author of numerous peer-reviewed papers and think articles on climate change and security including his most recent book States and Nature: The Effects of Climate Change on Security (Cambridge University Press, 2022). He has a PhD in Government from Georgetown University.
