Professor Ken Koyama, Chief Economist and Managing Director of Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ), will present an outline of the IEEJ’s recently announced Energy Outlook, and will also touch upon Japan’s recent energy policy challenges. Before discussion is opened up to the floor, comments will be given by Professor Paul Stevens, Distinguished Fellow for Energy, Environment and Resources at Chatham House, and Peter Hughes, Director of Peter Hughes Energy Advisory Ltd.
