Global Energy by 2030 facing Restructuring of all

Global Energy by 2030 facing Restructuring of all countries would be a problematic required by an Energy Transition that raises Security Issues worldwide, the conjunction of the fossil fuels volatility and the need for protection of the environment and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions had required a revision of all energy strategies.
This is roughly why we need as a matter of urgency to, on the one hand, review our current mode of energy consumption and on the other, exploit all forms of energy and the renewable ones that fortunately remain the only alternative. 
The recent devastating hurricanes pose many problems and Algeria is not immune from any of them. Studies of the United Nations anticipated drought unparalleled in North Africa between 2020 and 2025.

Renewables and Legitimacy in Post-Conflict States

In the MENA region, renewables and legitimacy in post-conflict states would at this conjecture not necessarily be top of any country’s governance agenda. Ali Ahmad , Director, Energy Policy and Security Program, having his own thoughts, wrote this article published on August 14 apart from giving us a positive feel about the Middle East and North Africa and all that is happening there has the merit to elaborate on the region’s ambition to remain at the forefront of energy resource world supplies. As put by  Laura El-Katiri in The Oxford Institute of Energy Studies the region is home to more than half of the world’s crude oil and more than a third of its natural gas reserves, the MENA region has, for the past fifty years, gained enormous significance as a global producer and exporter of energy. The MENA region is already a major energy consumer, and is forecast to continue to account, alongside Asia, for the majority of the world’s energy demand growth well into the 2030s; placing domestic energy policies at the heart of the region’s economic agendas for the coming decades . . .

Wave of Fossil Fuel Dislike amongst the Young

Further to our Demand May Top Out Before Supply Does, here is an interesting article on the side-lines of one of the Oil Industry’s concerns as elaborated on this report of the IBT on the recently held 22nd World Petroleum Congress – Istanbul, 2017 where it was a question of how age and gender could obviously affect the industry to survive this wave of fossil fuel dislike amongst the young.  The unleashing of a frenzy amongst today’s youth as Fossil Free is a growing international divestment movement calling for organisations, institutions and individuals to demonstrate climate leadership and end their financial support for the fossil fuel industry.

No industry for old men: Why ‘Big Oil’ needs to woo younger, female workforce

Energy industry’s lack of appeal for women and the young remains a major cause for concern.

Demand May Top Out Before Supply Does

France, Norway, Sweden headquartered Volvo are all about to do away with the use of anything to do with fossil oil. Such momentous decisions amongst others tend to vulgarise as it were all renewable forms of energy.  Meanwhile, there has been over the years so much talk and speculation about oil peaking this or that year, that up to recently, scepticism prevailing, everyone went about one’s business fairly insouciant that as put by Javier Blas, writer of the proposed article of Bloomberg; “Some Big Oil executives expect demand for the commodity to shrink faster than anticipated, with dire consequences for Middle East producers.”  Would It then matter as and when demand may top out before supply does or is it perhaps the other way around.
