Venice, Italy: FEEM seminar on "Energy from a Societal Perspective”



David Hobbs, Head of Research of the newly founded Saudi Arabian Energy Research Institution KAPSARC, analyses energy policy from an unusual perspective. Examining energy productivity and how it is formulated is one example of the ways in which boundary effects and the ability to “game the system” can undermine or assist efforts to capture policy benefits for all humanity. Other examples include the use of administered commodity prices to balance economic efficiency against social objectives and a framework for understanding energy technology transitions to balance the trade off between speed and societal burden.
