What Price Energy Security?
Nigel Roberts, Insead
Energy security is a complex issue which requires a nuanced approach if countries and companies are to avoid finding themselves between the “rock” of increasing energy demand and the “hard place” of meeting climate change objectives. The challenge for governments and the energy industry is not simply “keeping the lights on” by safeguarding supply lines from energy-producing countries to energy-consuming countries. It also requires a coherent strategy to ensure that carbon reduction targets are met at a fair price.
