I’ve got a new post up on the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ (CSIS) Asia blog, CogitAsia, analyzing Asia’s future energy mix and whether the region might be able to power a “golden age of gas”. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has recently predicted that this might be the case, and I attended a presentation recently by its chief economist Fatih Birol who offered his insights as well.
In this piece, I argue that while the trend lines look promising, the extent to which natural gas will dominate the energy picture in Asia will depend on two main forces: prices and politics. You can read the full thing here.
Beyond this article, I’d also urge those who follow Asia closely to frequent CogitAsia, because it is a great resource that is regularly updated with insightful commentary.
