ABSTRACT OF PAPER
 
Title of Paper:
From energy production to energy efficiency in the GCC
 
Paper Proposal Text :
The paper will argue that the era of rapid GCC growth since 2002 which was driven by increased oil and gas production and exports and record energy prices is now coming to a close. GCC growth in the future will depend on increasing efficiency generally and energy efficiency in particular. The paper will present data that shows that without radical increases in human and energy efficiency, the GCC economies will struggle in the next 25 years. It will set out for each GCC state the actions that are being taken to promote efficiency, particularly in energy, and will present a future policy framework designed to promote efficiency in all areas of the GCC economy.
