COVID-19: a challenge for economic growth
Uncertainty about public health, economics, and therefore energy before the end of 2020 is unprecedented. But we are learning from this crisis.
Global Energy Market Prospects: Post-View, Climate Change and Fossil-to-Renewable Energy Transition on the 2050 Horizon. Mr. Jean-Pierre Cordier will talk about this in his speech on October 7 at the online conference COVID-19: a challenge for economic growth.
Jean-Pierre Cordier began his career in the oil industry as a geophysicist in 1972 and has held various positions in exploration and production in France, Canada and Angola.

New energy infrastructure. Prospects, expectations, opportunities. Let's talk about it!
October 7, at 14.00 on the YouTube channel of the Institute.
