Full Description
 
This presentation will be a review of the energy markets from the perspective of a mutual fund company and the capital markets.  Oil, natural gas and alternative energy markets will be discussed.  Global oil supply and demand, oil in emerging markets, oil and gas prices, and natural gas supply and demand are some of the topics to be discussed.
 
As painful as it has felt, the global recession is expected to be just a bump in the road of continuously increasing energy consumption.  By 2012, excess supply of crude oil is likely to again be woefully inadequate and additional sources of energy will have to be developed and/or procured.  The lion’s share of incremental demand in recent years has come from developing nations. This trend is expected to continue as the economies in developing countries (China, India, etc) continue to grow.  Renewable fuels such as wind and solar are expected to gain global market share of the next two decades.
