'World Energy Outlook' to be presented at Rice University Dec. 9
Date:12/3/2008

Richard H. Jones, deputy executive director of the International Energy Agency, will present the "World Energy Outlook 2008" Dec. 9 at Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy.

Jones will address such questions as: Is the world facing a supply crunch because of geology or inadequate investment? What type of post-Kyoto policy framework might stabilize greenhouse gases at low concentration levels, and what impact might such a policy framework have on future energy choices?

In this special presentation, Jones will discuss the outlook for world energy markets, highlighting global energy trends and updates on energy projections to 2030. His talk will include an in-depth analysis of changing global trends, including post-2012 climate-change policy scenarios and related energy consequences, as well as future global oil and gas supply prospects. Jones will also explore energy and sustainability, focusing on energy poverty in sub-Saharan African countries.

Jones became deputy executive director of the International Energy Agency Oct. 1. A former U.S. diplomat, Jones served as the U.S. ambassador to four countries: Israel (2005-2008), Kuwait (2001-2004), Kazakhstan (1998-2001) and Lebanon (1996-1998). He also acted as the U.S. secretary of state's senior adviser and co-coordinator for Iraq policy from February to August 2005.

During his diplomatic career, Jones gained a wide range of policy experience in energy policy. As ambassador in Kuwait, he held discussions with international oil companies and with the minister of petroleum on production-sharing proposals. In Kazakhstan, he was the key liaison between the U.S. government and the presidency on the Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan pipeline and other critical energy issues.

In an earlier diplomatic posting in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, he forecast, analyzed and reported on changes in Saudi policy that eventually resulted in the collapse of world oil prices in 1986. In Riyadh, he
