A Japanese View on World Energy Future: The Impact of the Shale Revolution


JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization), London and the Japan Society, in cooperation with the IEEJ (Institute of Energy Economics, Japan) would like to invite you to a seminar on a Japanese view of the world’s energy outlook, with special focus given to analysing the impact of the shale revolution on the world energy market and the global economy.

The Chief Economist and Managing Director of the IEEJ, Professor Ken Koyama, will present an outline of the Institute’s recent Energy Outlook paper, as well as an update on Japan’s energy policy challenges following the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Before the discussion is opened to the floor, comments will be given by John Mitchell, Associate Fellow for Environment and Resources at Chatham House, and Howard Rogers, Director of the Natural Gas Programme at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies.

Professor Ken Koyama received his BA and MA degrees in Economics from Tokyo’s Waseda University, and his PhD from the University of Dundee where his thesis was titled Japan’s Energy Strategies toward the Middle East. He joined the IEEJ in 1986 and has held various positions within the Institute, such as Senior Economist and later Head of the World Oil and Energy Group, and Senior Research Fellow in the Energy and Strategy unit. Alongside his current position, Professor Koyama has also taught at the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Public Policy since 2010.
