Singapore Energy Lecture 2009, Dr. Daniel Yergin

Daniel Yergin Speaker Profile:

Daniel Yergin is a highly respected authority on energy, international politics, and economics. He is Vice Chairman of IHS and Founder of IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates.

Time Magazine said, “If there is one man whose opinion matters more than any other on global energy markets, it’s Daniel Yergin.” Fortune said that he is “one of the planet’s foremost thinkers about energy and its implications.” The New York Times described Daniel Yergin as “America’s most influential energy pundit”.

In 2014, the Prime Minister of India presented Dr. Yergin with “Lifetime Achievement Award” and the U.S. Department of Energy awarded him the first “James Schlesinger Medal for Energy Security.”

A Pulitzer Prize winner, Dr. Yergin is the author of the new bestseller The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World. The Economist described The Quest as “a masterly piece of work” by The Economist and The Financial Times called it “a triumph.” The New York Times said it is “necessary reading for C.E.O.’s, conservationists, lawmakers, generals, spies, tech geeks, thriller writers,” among many others.

Bill Gates summed up his review saying, “This is a fantastic book.”

Dr. Yergin is known around the world for his book The Prize: the Epic Quest for Oil Money and Power, which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. It became a number one New York Times best seller and has been translated into 20 languages.

Dr. Yergin is also a business leader, as Vice Chairman of IHS, one of the world’s largest research and information companies, with 9000 employees, and founder of Cambridge Energy Research Associates, which became part of IHS in 2004.

Of Dr. Yergin’s book Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy, which has been translated into 13 languages, The Wall Street Journal said, “No one could ask for a better account of the world’s political and economic destiny since World War II.” Both The Prize and Commanding Heights were made into award-winning television documentaries for PBS, BBC, and Japan’s NHK, which Dr. Yergin co-produced and co-wrote, and for which he was the leading narrator.

Dr. Daniel Yergin was awarded the United States Energy Award for “lifelong achievements in energy and the promotion of international understanding.” He received the Charles Percy Award for Public Service from the Alliance to Save Energy. The International Association for Energy Economics gave Dr. Yergin its 2012 award for “outstanding contributions to the profession of energy economics and to its literature.”
Dr. Yergin serves on the US Secretary of Energy Advisory Board and chaired the US Department of Energy’s Task Force on Strategic Energy Research and Development.

Dr. Yergin is a director of the Council on Foreign Relations and a trustee of the Brookings Institution. He is a member of the National Petroleum Council, a director of the United States Energy Association, the New America Foundation, and of the US-Russia Business Council. He is a member of the Advisory Boards of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Energy Initiative and of the Columbia University Center on Global Energy Policy and of Singapore’s International Energy Advisory Board. He is a “Wise Man” of the International Gas Union and a member of the Russian Academy of Oil and Gas. In 2012 he became an Adjunct Professor at the China University of Petroleum in Beijing.

Dr. Yergin holds a BA from Yale University, where he founded The New Journal, and a PhD from Cambridge University, where he was a Marshall Scholar.

The New Energy Future in the New World Economy?

How will the world change? Daniel Yergin draws on innovative, original scenarios to explore how great changes – in international politics, global economy, technology and the environment – will shape our future. What will it mean for world energy and political power if Asia overtakes North America to become the biggest part of the world economy? Could oil lose its monopoly position in fueling our cars? What would that mean for world politics? What happens if globalization falters, leading to a disappointing economic future, and a "global fissure"? Yergin dynamically addresses the trends that will shape the world and drive us into the future, outlines the conflicting choices and visions for the world economy and addresses what the great battle over globalization is all about. He also identifies key risks and opportunities, and describes the path to a better, safer world where the interests of competitive nations can come together—and the encouraging signposts along the way.

Oil, Power Money: The Age of Energy Insecurity

The great struggles over oil and energy—particularly how they interact with geopolitics and the future of society—are of a growing concern to everyone. Indeed, anxiety about energy is practically a part of daily life, prompting numerous questions about our energy future: What are the risks of conflict over energy resources and "a new energy crises." What will be the impact of high prices on the global economy—and on our own lives? Is the world really running out of oil? Will wind, ethanol and other renewable resources fill the gap? How will the energy needs of a growing world match up with rising concerns about carbon and climate change?

Globalization and the New Geopolitics

Today's era—"The Second Age of Globalization"—is proving much more challenging than was thought a few years ago. Balances of power have been constantly shifting, resulting in new alliances. The U.S., China and Russia are taking on new roles in this shifting geopolitical world, as the entire world now deals with the consequences of the war on terrorism. The technological forces shaping our future have led to critical debates about what it means to live in the "24-hour interconnected, hyperactive, e-mail-fueled, and sleep-deprived world." Meanwhile, a backlash continues to build against a world open to trade, investment, and communications, with energy as one of the most important forces changing the position of nations. Russia—flat on its back only a few years ago—is now an "energy superpower." China and India are the rising great powers. And worries about energy security are now a political fact in the United States and Europe, amplified by climate change.

Rethinking the Commanding Heights

The New Struggle between Governments and Markets; presents a broad vision of the great clash over the balance between governments and markets, and considers what the new turbulence at home and abroad will mean for what kind of society we will have in the future.
