Fossil Fuels Expert Roundtable: The Impact of Transport Decarbonization on Oil Prices

Chatham House, London

Energy, Environment and Resources Department, Fossil Fuels Expert Roundtable

Overview

Will electric vehicles cause the next oil price crash? A new report from Pöyry, the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and Cambridge Econometrics, argues that the global shift to electric mobility will cause demand  for the most valuable part of the barrel to collapse and permanently alter the trajectory of oil markets. This roundtable discussion with one of the report authors will explore whether the oil majors need to face up to a future without several billion internal combustion engines.
